Walk to Overcome Hunger

READ MORE:
Many local residents showed their support for a worthy cause Sunday, by putting on their walking shoes. The 28th annual "Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty" or "Crop Walk" drew a crowd of more than 100 people to raise awareness for hunger relief. A portion of the money raised from the event will go toward local agencies like the food bank and the domestic violence shelter. Besides showing their support for the five-mile walk, many donated money and canned goods. Last year the event brought in over $7,000; event organizers hope to top that amount this year.

A PORTION of the money????

"A portion of the money raised from the event will go toward local agencies like the food bank and the domestic violence shelter." Pray tell, where does the rest of the money go - into the pockets of the organizers?
