Organizers say money missing from benefit

FARGO – Organizers of a Friday night benefit for a local skateboarder say that several thousand dollars raised at the event is missing and possibly stolen.

Tom Kemmer, one of the organizers of a benefit for Billy Moyle held at The Aquarium in Fargo, said he and others spent Saturday reviewing security tapes and searching for a bag of money missing from the night before.

Moyle, of Fargo, was paralyzed from the waist down as a result of an October car accident. Kemmer said money from Friday’s benefit would go to defray Moyle’s medical expenses.

The money hadn’t been counted before it went missing, but Kemmer estimated it was between $2,000 and $3,000.

“It was snatched, or lost in transit, we don’t really know,” he said. “All that’s known is that it’s missing.”

Kemmer said the group filed a report with Fargo police on Saturday, and he urged anyone with information to call (651) 402-2061.
