The entitlement sense of some people is unbelievable. Often to be found in the more selfish ends of the arts worlds. Often like children in their solipsism. Would you agree for them to bring a six-year-old? Then this one can be a good guest, as it's as if you're putting on a dinner party. Allergies in a bidder, fair enough (though imo some people think they're allergic to everything, and that has to be manifestly psychosomatic, except in very special cases). But, this is something you offered for free for charity, right?
One, you can cook sauces with onions, and likely this precious thesp won't realise, since that adds sweetness and umami, not raw onion flavour.

Two, I bet that one hardly eats anyway and looks like a rake. the fussy ones always do. So, in a seven-course meal, she can just lump it for two or three courses, or have a salad.
Three, especially since if I'm a guest at something I don't go specifying my preferences "no peanut butter, no celery," I just hope, and will make do. Furthermore Celery is like onions (and carrots): great in sauce bases anyway! So, how does she get to do this? Not in any social universe but a me-oriented one!
Four, you offered this out of the goodness of your heart. This must not be something that pus you out... life's too short, and it's their problem not yours, so make the solution which you find to be right. I have some options beyond the "they'll miss out on some flavours", and i bet others do too.
