Concatenate & SUMIF Formatting

Using Excel 2013 on Windows 8 laptop... not sure what else you need.

I've managed (I don't know how) to create this really cool formula in my file I use for my checkbook register to tell me the total balance that's cleared... but the formatting is wrong - and it's irritating me greatly! Any help or pointing to a post that already has the answer would be greatly appreciated! I've copied / pasted the formula below...

=CONCATENATE("Cleared Balance : "&SUMIF(MyTransactions[C],"=1",(((MyTransactions[Balance])))))

I really just want the "MyTransactions[Balance]" to display as $ ##.## but I can't figure it out! I've got it done on my current balance formula, but for some reason I cant figure out this one... it is past my bed time so my brain may just be fogged over! :) I've pasted below the formula for my current balance that IS formatting correctly. I don't know if the SUMIF formula is preventing the formatting, if I'm getting confused with all the dang parenthesis or what.

=CONCATENATE("Current Balance : "&TEXT(MyTransactions[[#Totals],[Balance]],"$#,##0.00"))

Thanks in advance for any assistance!!

Ok, now that I test it more the formula isn't working anyways so nevermind... Not sure how to delete this.
