Comedy Get Down Benefit Show Raises $120k for Flint Water Crisis Relief [PHOTO]
The Comedy Get Down tour, featuring D.L. Hughley, Cedric the Entertainer, George Lopez, Eddie Griffin, and Charlie Murphy, had a benefit show at the Dort Federal Event Center for the victims of the Flint Water Crisis. in a few words -- It was a huge success.
While Flint has seen its share of incredibly generous celebrity donation, the national comedy tour's Flint stop was the first major water crisis charity concert event put on by celebs within city limits. The well-known lineup brought down the Dort Federal Event Center Saturday Night (Feb. 21), and donated all the proceeds to children effected by the Flint water crisis. The tally, according to D.L. Hughley's Facebook post (see below) was $120,000.
Thanks to D.L., George, Cedric, Eddie, and Charlie for your support. This is one of the biggest donations the city has seen to date and is greatly appreciated.
