Change ‘fee’ value for ACM Latex Paper

Recently I submitted a paper to an ACM Conference. When I was reviewing the final draft I noticed that the fee value in the copyright block was incorrect. For example, in the block below the fee is automatically set to $5.00 but the Conference I’m submitting to has a fee of $10.00.

It looks like this value is hard coded into the sig-alternate.cls file. Just go in and modify it like so:
