Alyssa Milano At Larry King’s Telethon In Hollywood, California U.S.A.
Larry King’s celebrity telethon Monday night to benefit relief efforts in the oil spill disaster in the region of the Gulf of Mexico brought in $1.8 million for the United Way, the National Wildlife Federation, and the Nature Conservancy.
King, who celebrates 53 years in broadcasting this year, described a sense of urgency in getting help to the Gulf of Mexico, a region under extreme duress since the oil rig explosion on April 20.
“I understand bureaucracy and that some things take time, but when you’re out of work, you don’t need help tomorrow, you need help today,” he said in a press release. “We’re going to raise all we can to help the people and also the wildlife that need it now.”
