    Assuming it was a Charity event, what charities are benefiting? How was money collected? (admission, donation, items for sale, pledges) and how much WAS collected?


    TIA

    (and if it wasn't a charity event...nevermind)

    I don't think it was a charity event. Nobody paid anything.
    He did a shout out for contributions to a charity that benefits the families of fallen soldiers.

    Can't you just look at the website and find out information for yourself?

    And.... all this was explained on another thread.... are you not capable of reading?

    Jeeez. No wonder the left is such a fucking mess. They're apparently all stupid.

    I tried...found nothing.

    Didn't see the particular thread you are referring to, but I did see mention in another thread that this was a charity event...thus my question.


    I am terribly sorry that my questions upset you that much.

    It was a charity in a sense that it got him a lot of attention. He will bank on it..of course he used soldiers to gen up the "patriotism" but he is a self serving clown who did this for him...Who doesn't know this? Do you honestly think he cares about the soldiers family's?

    if he cared, he would be more of a cheerleader for the war to end. He did crap from show the night the iraq war was over....he didnt even hold a show for support of the troops coming home. Nothing.

    Horrible, horrible person.

    I now understand why you constantly get 'facts' wrong. You lack even basic research skills.

    Charity: Special Operations Warriors Foundation

    Total raised: $5m

    I still can't understand why California Girl got snarky like that.

    It says they were able to raise $5 million...but that link is BEFORE the rally. So that brings up another question....how did they raise the money and how much of it actually goes to the charity as opposed to "operating costs".

    $5 million doesn't just pop up like that....must have been some kind of charity function or adverts for that charity beforehand....where would that have been? Glen's show? Commercials? Radio ads?

    This is what I have found on this charity:

    History - Special Operations Warrior Foundation Sounds good, but still some puzzlement as to the financial connection between the charity and the event.
