Obviously my numbers are off, but it's a good enough hypothetical to move on with.
Yeah....your numbers are off
It is 23 players, not 230 to get $575 in entry fees at $25 per head.
$1000 cash raised for a 23 player event is amazing! (what is the sponsors' ROI, might I ask?)
18 man hours to run an event is very "efficient", if you catch my drift.

I would like to play in your event. With $22 players packs for all, $11 food/drink each, and $700 of payout for the top 40%* that is a pretty good time!!

*payout curve might look like this:
1- $140
2- $100
3- $90
4- $80
5- $70
6- $60
7- $52
8- $44
9- $36
10- $28

......and you would still get complaints about the wholesale/retail differential. People want you to give them stuff at wholesale cost, dang it!
