Renting Dodger Stadium for a Bar Mitzvah

When is a Bar or Bat Mitvah too much?

Question: My husband wants a lavish bar mitzvah for our son next year. I think it's wrong to spend $ 50,000 on a party for a 13 year old kid when so many of our fellow Jews are experiencing hard times. What does Jewish law have to say about this?
