    No, he didn't donate $44,000, he donated $95,000 from what I tallied up. That includes the the $44,000 to local businesses and charities and $51,000 to the Theatre to help with it's renovation. Included in the $51,000 were the proceeds from the personal items from his house Glenn sold online.

    And your link to the Hillsboro newspaper says the Theatre holds 769 people, so that's only.....huh....$96,000. How many meet and greet tickets were sold?

    and btw... He donated that 51,000 to the Murphy for renovations months later and was asked for a donation. The fact is, he turned a profit on Wilmington.

    Yes, you're right. However, you have to take into account a few other things. He had to rent the theater and pay the city of Wilmington for their help with security. Do we know how much those things cost? I don't know. But your "proof" that he kept $256,000 of charity money is losing ground quickly.

    So he most likely donated almost all if not the entire amount back to the city of Wilmington. Not only that, but he spent thousands of dollars in hotel rooms and food for his staff and family. He also brought thousands of people into Wilmington who spent thousands of dollars on hotels and food. They also purchased from stores there, ate at Wilmington restaurants, purchased books at the bookstore (gasp!) and donated to local charities themselves. Do you know the bookstore had to hire 3 more people just to keep up with the popularity of their store because of Glenn and his show? Evil, huh? The food pantry received a year worth's of donations from that weekend alone. *shudder* Almost Hitleresque, eh?

    This was a GOOD event, SheWolf. The facts support it. You might hate the guy and his beliefs, but you can't say this event wasn't great for the town of Wilmington.

    Okay, but now you're doing the same thing you accuse SW of doing.

    I'm torn between them being willfully ignorant, or plum stupid.

    Glenn's charitable contributions do not make him a decent human being. It's dirty money, made on the backs on naive people who support this idiot and are incapable of seeing him for the flim flam man that he is.

    It wasn't great for Wilmington. He isn't considered a hero there. As I keep saying, the only local people that got involved were Beck fans because he charged you for everything. He charged you to take a photo with him.
