Hurricane Relief Telethon Set to Begin with Huge Celebs

Hurricane Relief Telethon

Celebs Bring In Millions

9/12/2017 4:40 PM PDT

The telethon to benefit victims of Hurricanes Irma and Harvey just wrapped with fundraising efforts totaling over $14 million and counting in just an hour.

As we reported … celebs like Al Pacino, Justin Timberlake, Jon Stewart, Chris Paul, Demi Lovato, Diddy, Leo DiCaprio, Justin Bieber, Sofia Vergara, Reese Witherspoon, Drake and many more pitched in for the one-hour long show.

Several of them answered phones to take donations, and others performed as the telethon — the brain child of Scooter Braun and Bun B — went live from L.A., NYC, Nashville and San Antonio. And with Michael Dell and Verizon footing the bill for production … 100% of proceeds will benefit hurricane victims.

Obviously, a great cause … and a great event too.
