Backstreet Boys' Charity Donation Held Up By Fiscal Issues

Fiscal problems are temporarily interrupting the Backstreet Boys plans to donate $75,000 to the Columbine College Fund, which was to have provided scholarships to student survivors of the massacre at Columbine High School in April.

The Columbine College Fund is about to fold because of a lack of funds, as the San Francisco-based non-profit organization has only received $800 in donations so far, according to the Associated Press.

The Backstreet Boys wanted to make the $75,000 donation after discovering that 1,200 tickets to its Halloween show at Denver's Pepsi Center were scalped for $110 a piece, an almost 200 percent markup from the tickets' $38.50 face value.

House Of Blues, the promoter charged by the boy band to make the $75,000 donation, is currently in search of another organization to fund and wants to make sure that the money will go to benefit students at Columbine High School.
