I guess we'll see if the s*** hits the fan!

Last August some of Dan's friends threw a benefit for the kids after he passed away. A woman who none of us knew (but who I'm pretty sure is the one he dated briefly when we split up for a few months in 06) was in charge of the money. We didn't really know any of the people very well who threw the benefit so we didnt really question anything, we were told not to worry about any of it and all we had to do was show up, have some drinks and I had to play a set. After the benefit the woman took me out drinking and she was really nice and I thought we'd end up friends, we even hung out a few times after it. I didn't want to be rude asking about the money from it (we didn't really need it but they said it was for the boys school supplies). I finally got fed up and asked her about it point blank in October because people who'd donated were asking about it. I got no reply.
Tonight Dan's mom and I were talking about it when she came over so we decided it's time to just call the girl out on it. This is what I posted on Facebook and I'm just sitting here waiting for the shit to hit the fan.

"Daniel _______'s mom was here and she's really upset that the kids never got money from Dan's benefit ( Tori _______ was in charge of it). It's not about the money, it's the fact that people donated thinking it was going to the boys and it deters people from helping others in the future. I just hate seeing her upset about this stuff when she already has enough on her plate :("

Money should have been discussed/handed over the night of the benefit.

That's just foul on her part.

I'm not sure how much it was for. I know there were hundreds of dollars worth of things raffled though (neon signs aren't cheap and the gift cards were $25 and up).

Can you guys sue her in small claims court? Judge Judy would have a field day with this!

I don't have any of her info, we're just friends on Facebook.

Quoting JNLmomme09:

Why are you calling her out in Facebook instead of just confronting her in person

Like I said she took me (and a few of his other friends) out drinking after it so I wasn't thinking.

She probably paid for the drinks with the benefit money, or reimbursed herself...

His mom and I didn't want to come off as money hungry. It's more annoyance and principal and it just wasn't worth a fight to us. She was going to post on his page about it just to let everyone know we never saw a dime but I didn't want people thinking she was being petty so I posted it for her because I could care less if anyone is mad at me.
