In a report going to council tonight, the event cost the Municipality just under $20,000 to host, with Rogers covering the majority of the expenses.

Several donations were made to local organizations, including $15,000 to Chatham-Kent 4-H from the Ted Rogers Community Grant, 5-grand to the Wallaceburg Minor Hockey Association, and $400 for the ALL for Kids Program.

While the exact attendance number is unknown, municipal officials say thousands showed up to the 2-day event.
