A South Carolina man got creative trying to raise funds for a Spartanburg youth theater company Wednesday. He established a GoFundMe page to “Help Protect Betty White from 2016.”
The page, set up by Demetrios Hrysikos of Spartanburg, said, “Help 2016 catch these hands if it goes anywhere near Betty White! If she’s okay with it I will fly to where ever Betty White is and keep her safe till Jan 1 , 2017.”
The monetary goal for “protection,” Hrysikos said, is $2,000; however, if White doesn’t “want a strange Greek standing guard outside her door all monies will be donated to the Spartanburg little theater to help craft new stars of stage and screen to carry mantle of the legends that have left is this year. ”
So far, as of Wednesday morning, the fund had raised $1,895.
