If else if statement error in PDF form

I am working on a form for a bar contract for use at a local 503-C Social Hall which is rented out for fundraising to support the group.  The form contains five radio buttons to select the type of bar service package desired, and I am trying to have the selected package display on the billing page of the contract.   The following Javascript code generates this error:  "SyntaxError: Missing ; before statement 17: at line 18".  Any help deeply appreciated.

// This JavaScript Displays the chosen Bar Package from
// Page 1 of the Bar Contract by first retrieving the results
// of the Radio Button Selection on that page
var Package = this.getField("Bar Service").value;

// Then determine the Package price per person

if (Package == "None") {
    event.valu = "No Beverage Services Requested, No Charge."
} else if (Package == "Non-alcohol") {
    event.valu = "Non-Alcoholic Package Requested, $2.00 per person, per hour."
} else if (Package == "Beer") {
    event.valu = "Beer, Wine & Soda Package Requested, $4.00 per person, per hour."
} else if (Package == "Open") {
    event.valu = "Open Bar Package Requested, $7.00 per person, per hour."
} else (Package == "Cash") {
    event.valu = "Cash Bar Package Requested, $15.00 per Bartender, per hour, per 60 guests."
}

Thank you for the assistance, I figured it out!  The following code works:

// This JavaScript Displays the chosen Bar Package from
// Page 1 of the Bar Contract by first retrieving the results
// of the Radio Button Selection on that page
var Package = this.getField("Bar Service").value;

// Then determine the Package price per person

if (Package == "None") {
    event.value = "No Beverage Services Requested, No Charge."
} else if (Package == "Non-alcohol") {
    event.value = "Non-Alcoholic Package Reque

1. It's event.value, not event.valu...

2. In the last clause you forget to add if before the else...

Thank you for the rapid response.  I had already noticed and corrected the event.valu in the last line.  I tried your suggestion, and changed the last clause to read:

} if else (Package == "Cash") {

    event.value = "Cash Bar Package Requested, $15.00 per Bartender, per hour, per 60 guests."

}

and received the following error: "SyntaxError: missing ( before condition 17: at line 18"
