Can somebody please add the probability of such a nice and round number actually being the end result of the sum of all money spent? :)

We got as close as we could to the total amount with all of our necessary expenses and then spent the remaining $114.42 on the afterparty expenses in addition to the co-organizers chipping in some of their own money to cover anything over the $114.42.
