the burden of proof would be on you to show that she didn't attend and didn't give the ticket to someone else to use.

I can get sworn statements that she wasn't there from two friends who attended . As for proving that none of the other attendees used her ticket, I don't think the tax savings from the deduction would cover the costs of doing that.;)
