Exclusive: Startifacts Donor Baffled By Corey Haim's Family
Kronick holds check that wasn't enough for Haim's family
Tuesday, March 23, 2010 17:32 GMTMINNEAPOLIS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) The man funding Corey Haims funeral is being dissed by the late actors family.
Last week, Startifacts owner Michael Kronick wrote a five-figure check to pay for Haims funeral out of his own pocket.
However, the cash isnt enough for Haims family, who claim the donation was less than expected and they still need more money on coreyhaim.us.
Kronick exclusively tells FlashNews that hes mystified and saddened by the familys response to his generosity.
They havent even given him a thank you.
Kronick laments, Talk about looking a gift horse in the mouth. Its really a slap in the face.
Over the past week, his memorabilia company has raised thousands of dollars by auctioning items that Haim personally sold to Startifacts.
Kronick promised to give all proceeds to Haims family and still will, but perhaps with less enthusiasm.
He says fundraising for them is no longer his top priority.
