How to get a Sum of a Column using C#, with Silverlight?

This is my Table
Name :         Balance
Rex               500.00
Alex              250.75
Roger            300.78

I want to get the Sum of the Balance. How?
I have a code here but I think there's something lacking.

        private void cmdUpdate_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        {
                objctx = new InOutOrganizationContext();
                var salary = objctx.MyBalances.Select(i => i.Balance);
                var sum = salary.Sum();
                MessageBox.Show(sum.ToString());
        }

Any help? please!

Are you sure that your Balance Entity has values in the Balance Column or property, i have simulated your problem and my list of Balance Entity does return value when i apply sum on it:-

class MyBalance
    {
        public int Id { get; set; }
        public int Balance { get; set; }
    }

    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {

            var lstBalance = new List<MyBalance>
                                 {
                                     new MyBalance {Balance = 10, Id = 1},
                                     new MyBalance {Balance = 32, Id = 2},
                                     new MyBalance {Balance = 67, Id = 3}
                                 };

            var retVal = lstBalance.Sum(b => b.Balance); //Return 109 as sum
            

            Console.Read();

        }

        
    }
