well over $50,000.00, not letting it go that easily. Well over! That is why they are not going to list it in spite of repeated requests.

What do you think is a reasonable salary for someone in that position? I think 50 is reasonable given how hard she works and her responsibilities. I have worked with her and know her to be a decent and well intentioned person. She is not in it for the money as far as I can tell. It takes hard work and intelligence to do her job. Hence she should make a reasonable salary. 50k is more than peanuts but not inappropriate. The UW feeds, clothes, and funds locally. Not all charities do that. Nor do most do it as efficiently.

Not going to list it? Repeated requests to whom? You're delusional. It's public info as reported on the United Way tax return freely available from their own website. Nothing is being hidden.

Not sure which decade you're stuck in, but $50K isn't that large a salary for a professional position with many responsibilities and hats to wear. I really don't understand your beef with this organization that funds so many worthwhile agencies in our community.

They raised almost 50k for 33 non- profit organizations. Each board of director member is required to personally visit at least 2 of these a year and all are visited and audited to guarantee these organizations are performing their duties to a degree satisfactory to the UW. Their goal is $500,000 this year to distribute among all these organizations. If a fund recipient isn't cutting it the board denies their request, literally 99% of total revenue stays in the community to support these groups, 1% is paid to United Way America. Some of these groups that receive money are food banks, baby pantries, homeless shelters, women's resource center, boy scouts, girl scouts, the list goes on. These people that participated put themselves out there to help raise awareness and gain financial support for the groups that receive funds. How in the fucking world you ass clowns can get on here and bitch and cry because nobody asked you or you didn't want to buy a ticket or no "regular" people participated is literally beyond me. These people don't think they are famous or stars, they are trying to help so if something ever happens and someone is in need of assistance they have somewhere to go and receive that. Quit crying and donate your time and energy to trying to help a community, get off topix and do something. Margaret O'Neal busts her ass and doesn't make a whole lot of money, they have people that work in that office that literally make minimum wage and bust their ass. They get babies diapers and help find shelter for people who don't have it. I'm sure the CEO of the national organization makes a shit ton of money but Margaret doesnt. They tried to have a fun event that is different and raise money. They succeeded and you nut fuckers are jealous. Really? These comments are beyond laughable, much like the people that post them. Why the fuck am I even on here is the real question. Peace out, bitches.

Your filthy vocabulary needs to be reported. There is no need for such filthy talk. Filthy language represents a lack of vocabulary. This trashy display is a bad refection on United Way. Is this how you guys conduct yourself? I will report you to Topix for your filth and this letter needs to be published where many can see it. Filty language is uncalled for.

If that had been written in Chinese, you would have had no idea. Little black marks on a white background - you supply the relevance, importance, and meaning. You've displayed your self-supposed uprightness- now own up to your own uptightness.

Curse words on topix, I am shocked. I always thought that reading posts on here was voluntary. Did someone make you read it?
You remind me of the story of the two old maids (can you still use that term) who went to the movies. Half way through the movie, the one said to the other, the man beside me is masturbating. The other old maid said OMG lets leave, the other replied "I cant he is using my hand"
I think the poster was just fed up listening to a bunch of pissers and moaners put down a bunch of good people who did a good thing.

Here's a nice write-up on DWTS. The $50k figure I presume is after expenses. I figured it would be more based on the ticket prices and the $23k in People's Choice money raised. Maybe they're still tallying. Still, 50 grand raised for one evening ain't too shabby.

Good article and it seems the event exceeded their expectations of at least 200 people for this 1st time event as 600 people turned out. I'm sure this was a learning experience and one that will determine whether it will be become an annual event (like Celebrity Night - 24 years).

My favorite part was when Jarrell tried to make a big entrance on a motorcycle, which he couldn't get started. the cycle finally had to be pushed in. Someone needs to tell Sir Chunky he ain't Tom Cruise!!!
