    Beck Donates $51,000 to Murphy Theatre

    Beck donates $51k to Murphy Theatre

    Nearly five months after Glenn Beck visited Wilmington and helped give local businesses a much needed cash infusion, the popular talk-show host is pulling out his wallet to help the theater that hosted him.

    Beck and his wife, Tania, recently sent a check for $51,000 to the Murphy Theatre to help repair its aging infrastructure — a five-project undertaking which is expected to cost more than $500,000.

    “I literally started crying,” said Murphy board member Leslie Keller when recalling the phone conversation she had with Beck’s representative. Keller had called to ask if Beck and his production team would donate $5,500 to the theater’s fund-raising campaign. Instead, Beck offered $40,000. “You can imagine how blown away we were.”

    But that $40,000 grew into $51,000 when the final proceeds were tallied from a home sale that Beck hosted in the run-up to his “America’s First Christmas” event in December 2010.......

    51 thousand dollars? That's so brave of him! He's going to have to sell his home now. Talk about sacrifice.

    Is this really breaking national news?

    Can this be moved to where it belongs, somewhere much lower, like, down in "general anything?"

    51,000 is an odd number. Are you guys sure he is an American and not the anti Christ or anything?

    Well our numerical system was strongly influenced by Arab Muslims. Beck is a Muslim. Case closed.

    Holy ****, rich person gives to charity, stop the presses!
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    $51,000, that's an awkward amount, let me get my chalk board and explain how he is really funding al-qaeda!
