Wilder Ball Raised $153,000 

Among the cash sponsors, Philip Morris USA and Capital One Financial Corp. donated $10,000 each. There were four $5,000 donors: Dominion Resources, First Market Bank, Homebuilding Association of Richmond and Troutman Sanders. Four companies donated $2,500 each: Christian & Barton, General Services Corp., Norfolk Southern Corp. and Performance Food Group.

The event cost $90,000, which included such expenses as renting the ballroom at the Richmond Marriott, catering for a private reception and printing the invitations.

Goldman says he isn't sure what the mayor plans to do with the money. "There is no specific plan at present," he says. — Scott Bass
