Sam Binkow was a minor celebrity today, 18 May, at the AIDS Walk New York. He promised to walk in a Speedo if he could get $3,000 (€2,100) in donations.
The Los Angeles man accumulated $9,000 (€6,500) and joined thousands of others in Central Park to walk 10K for AIDS/HIV organizations.
'The Speedo brings out the donations,' Binkow said to GSN. 'I love it and so does my girlfriend.'
The day was a financial success. Organizers announced, via Twitter, participants collected a total of $5.1 million (€3.7).
