ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Representatives say Glenn Beck will donate his speaking fee from his upcoming appearance with Sarah Palin in Anchorage.

Christopher Balfe, president of Beck’s media company, says the fee from Saturday’s event at the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center will go to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. The organization provides scholarships and services to families of military members.

The amount is not being disclosed.

Balfe says Palin is not receiving a fee for introducing the Fox News Channel personality at the event, taking place on the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Tickets range from $73.75 to $225. Therin Ferrin, with a private contractor that operates the city’s convention centers, says all but 800 of 4,500 tickets had been sold.
