Use CASE for multiple occurrences

I have a table that has 6 columns to define if a show attendee will attend a dinner (up to 6).  For example if 3 people attend the show but only 2 of the 3 attendees will be attending the dinner i want to display a column called DINNER with the 2 attending as yes and the 3rd as no. I tried it with as case statement but the way I have it coded it displays the column correctly but the result is yes for all 3 including the one that is not attending. Code Result
SELECT     UPPER(dealer_trade_expo.accountnumber) AS accountnumber, UPPER(dealer_trade_expo.businessname)AS businessname ,CASE attending# WHEN 1 THEN attending_1 WHEN 2 THEN attending_2 WHEN 3 THEN attending_3 WHEN 4 THEN attending_4 WHEN 5 THEN attending_5
                       WHEN 6 THEN attending_6 END AS attending, dealer_trade_expo.address, dealer_trade_expo.address2, dealer_trade_expo.city, 
                      dealer_trade_expo.state, dealer_trade_expo.zip_code, dealer_trade_expo.phone, dealer_trade_expo.fax, dealer_trade_expo.email,dealer_trade_expo.salesrep, 
                      ISNULL(dealer_trade_expo.attending_day1,'N') AS Monday, ISNULL(dealer_trade_expo.attending_day2,'N') AS Tuesday,dealer_trade_expo.registrant_type,
					  (CASE WHEN  dealer_trade_expo.dinner_1 = 'Y' OR dealer_trade_expo.dinner_2 = 'Y' OR  dealer_trade_expo.dinner_3 = 'Y'OR  dealer_trade_expo.dinner_4 = 'Y'OR dealer_trade_expo.dinner_5 = 'Y'OR  dealer_trade_expo.dinner_6 = 'Y' THEN 'YES' ELSE 'NO' END) AS DINNER
FROM         dealer_trade_expo CROSS JOIN
                          (SELECT     1 AS attending#
                            UNION ALL
                            SELECT     2 AS Expr1
                            UNION ALL
                            SELECT     3 AS Expr1
                            UNION ALL
                            SELECT     4 AS Expr1
                            UNION ALL
                            SELECT     5 AS Expr1
                            UNION ALL
                            SELECT     6 AS Expr1) AS attending#s
WHERE     (NOT (CASE attending# WHEN 1 THEN attending_1 WHEN 2 THEN attending_2 WHEN 3 THEN attending_3 WHEN 4 THEN attending_4 WHEN 5 THEN attending_5
                       WHEN 6 THEN attending_6 END = ' ')) AND dealer_trade_expo.accountnumber = 'A01913'--AND (dealer_trade_expo.special_event1 = 'Yes')
ORDER BY dealer_trade_expo.businessname, attending#s.attending#

You need to reformat the CASE for the dinner column similar to you attending column, i.e. use the attending# pseudocolumn:
(CASE WHEN  
   dealer_trade_expo.dinner_1 = 'Y' AND attending# = 1 OR 
   dealer_trade_expo.dinner_2 = 'Y' AND attending# = 2 OR  
   dealer_trade_expo.dinner_3 = 'Y' AND attending# = 3 OR  
   dealer_trade_expo.dinner_4 = 'Y' AND attending# = 4 OR
   dealer_trade_expo.dinner_5 = 'Y' AND attending# = 5 OR
   dealer_trade_expo.dinner_6 = 'Y' AND attending# = 6 
THEN 'YES' ELSE 'NO' END) AS DINNER
