Space, a social networking website. Casey Cheatham was a member of Face Space, and he became “friends” with the Directors and several members of the Booster Club on that website in the weeks that followed. 5. During the summer of 2013, the Directors and the members of the Morningside Heights Booster Club raised $150,000 by soliciting donations from the wealthiest residents of the Morningside Heights District. Notwithstanding the success of this direct solicitation, Peyton Pearson convinced the other Directors that the Booster Club should host a fundraiser that would be affordable for most citizens of the Morningside Heights District to attend. After discussing possible fundraising ideas, the Directors decided to plan a first annual “Morningside Heights Fun Fair” that would take place from Friday, August 23, through Sunday, August 25, in the nearby Shoreline Park. The Fun Fair would include carnival rides for attendees of all ages, a chicken barbecue, and games of chance such as bingo, roulette, and blackjack for adults. Although tickets to the Fun Fair would cost only $5.00, the Directors anticipated making most of their revenue on sales of tickets for the rides and the chicken barbecue, and especially on the proceeds from the games of chance. 6. The Fun Fair proved to be a great success. Over 5,000 tickets at $5.00 apiece and 4,000 chicken dinners at $7.00 apiece were sold. All of the revenues from the sale of the entry tickets and the chicken dinner tickets were profit because Peyton Pearson had graciously contributed all of the food, rides, and prizes at the Fun Fair in kind. Because the entry tickets and the chicken dinners were sold at a single location the headquarters of the Pearson Precision Corp. only until the day before the Fun Fair began, the Booster Club could easily keep track of the proceeds. Every business day from July 1, 2013 (the first day the entry and chicken dinner tickets were sold), through August 22, 2013, Peyton Pearson gathered the proceeds from that day’s ticket sales and personally deposited them in the Booster Club’s account the next day at the local branch of the Empire of New York Bank.

53 11/19/14 7. Unlike the entry tickets and the chicken dinner tickets, ride tickets were sold only during the Fun Fair. Before the Fun Fair began, the Booster Club’s Directors could not predict how much money the Club would earn from the sales of those ride tickets, or from the proceeds of the games of chance. Because Peyton Pearson would be busy overseeing the Fun Fair event all three days of its duration, Peyton deputized Casey Cheatham to monitor the sale of ride tickets and the games of chance. Peyton specifically recalls directing Casey to gather the proceeds of ride ticket sales and the games of chance at the end of each day of the Fun Fair, and to await further instruction as to how those funds were to be deposited or disbursed.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
