I thought it would be useful to post the part of policy where this applies:

"B. Money may not be spent on events closed to the general populace and
without a specific administrative agenda (SFP IX.E).
This includes Royalty Dinners, Peer Parties, or similar events. Special
expensive dishes presented at a feast intended for the consumption of only
a few people is allowed, although strongly discouraged."
-Chancellor of the Exchequer Branch Officer‘s Reference Handbook October
2007, Chapter 4, Section V

It is my understanding that due to our non-profit 501(c)(3) status.
