They were able to raise a net donation of US $9000 from the event after deducting all expenses of the fair US $4000 from total sales of US$13,000 on that day.
It is said that the organizers of the fund raiser are planning to hand the donations over to CoBA so as to be managed by the majority decision of CoBA. The balance sheet of the event and acknowledgement letters have been carefully compiled and already sent to respective donors.
