    Two Bay Area philanthropists have given San Francisco a check to cover the cost of making Batkid's dream come true.

    In November, San Francisco transformed into Gotham City to allow a 5-year-old leukemia patient to live out his wish of being Batman.

    The San Francisco Chronicle said John and Marcia Goldman have donated $105,000 to cover the city's expenses.
