Burton says after that they had $12,384.30 for charity. He wasn't surprised, given the smaller size of Kingsbury Hall, and the amount of student tickets sold more cheaply. He says, "We just tried to be as reasonable as we could."
Guadalupe Schools, Primary Children's Medical Center and the University of Utah Student Scholarship Fund are each getting about $4,000. Burton says they've told him they are pleased with the donations.
