If the event raised 1643.99 and only 10% was donated, what did the other 1479$ get put towards? Setting up the event? Permits? I'm curiouse because only putting 10% of raised money to a carity seems quite low especailly when the first year it was 100% donated. Is there a website where more info is posted I looked around but couldn't find any.
