Tonight, Brad Paisley joins a who’s-who of celebrities from West Virginia, including actress Jennifer Garner, in a telethon to help raise money to help the flood-ravaged state. Billy Ray Cyrus, who worked for years in the house band at Ragtime Lounge in Huntington, will co-host the show.
Twenty-three people died as flood waters overwhelmed many parts of the state June 23 and 24, causing hundreds of millions of dollars in damage. The Rebuild West Virginia telethon will be broadcast all across the state from 7-9 p.m. ET, with a live stream of the event also available. Donations will be directed to RebuildWestVirginia.com, to help flood victims through the American Red Cross.
Thursday, Brad toured his home state, after launching his own GoFundMe campaign to try to raise $1 million to help. So far, he’s nearly half way to his goal.
