    That does not seem like a balanced disbursement of funds.

    • Justice not Peace says:

      Tell me about it, $30,000.00 to his own RIde the Wave and only $2,500 to Chewstick? At the end of the day, it is his to do as he wishes so who are we? I still wholeheartedly agree with you.

    • Triangle Drifter says:

      He did the bulk of organizing it. He did the work. He is perfectly entitled to disburse the profits however he saw fit. He could have treated it strictly as a business venture & kept it all for himself & the others who put the work into it.

      How many of the other concert promoters donate anything meaningful to charity?

    • Mad Dawg says:

      $92,000 raised for charities, and people complain? And because disbursements aren’t ‘balanced’?

      Amazing isn’t it.

  2. Triangle Drifter says:

    Lets hope Tony is part of the new tourism board. The last bunch did not seem to like hard working successful people who had ideas of things that make money.
