Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

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 :("

Oh mama I am so sorry. You are not being petty. People that donated and came out to support you and your kids need to know you didn't get the money.

You might want to edit her name off of this. She was so easy to find on Facebook.

I'd be one pissed off money and the people who donated should know you never saw a dime of what they donated.

 It is fraud call the police tell them what happened. This is probably not the first time she has done this.  She will do it again.


Quoting WesAndNicksMom:

How would we prosecute if we don't know the actual dollar amount though? Some of his family owns a restaurant and I know they would know how much they donated in gift cards and my friend Amira won most of the raffle prizes and could probably tell me how much she spent on tickets but other than that I'm not sure.

I don't think you need an actual amount, rather a ballpark depending on what you raffled, how much of it, what you charged for raffle, ect. You could also add charges for distress.
