In response to a fundraiser by the Lowcountry Food Bank, I recently wrote a check for $27 that will provide 162 meals for hungry families at Thanksgiving.
At another recent fundraiser for President Obama hosted by the singer Beyonce and her husband, Jay Z, $280,000 was spent on champagne for the event.
I wonder how many meals for hungry families that $280,000 could have provided.
