LeAnn Rimes, Jason Derulo, & MORE Celebs Help Raise Nearly $57 Million For Muscular Dystrophy Telethon!

| Filed under: Leann RimesHealthCharityJason DeruloHeartwarming

Celebs helped raise a TON of money during the annual MDA Show of Strength telethon!

It looks like dumping a bucket of ice water on your head isn't the only way to raise money for an excellent cause!

A good ole' fashioned telethon will do the trick!

The proof is in the pudding, as the Muscular Dystrophy Association ran their 2-hour annual MDA Show of Strength telethon this weekend, featuring stars like LeAnn Rimes, Jason Derulo, and Rascal Flatts!

So how much did they raise, exactly? How about $56,952,177!! Not bad!!

However, the huge chunk of cash failed to meet last year's grand total of nearly $59 million! Oh well! $57 million is definitely nothing to be disappointed in!!

Good work, y'all!

    Lavish Republican fundraiser with LeAnn Rimes nets $650

    Rimes and her entourage made out well at the Jan. 4 fundraiser that served as Republican Rep. Jeff Denham's big political debut in Washington. Between assorted fees, flowers, catering and other costs, Denham's special fundraising committee reported spending $212,250 on the Rimes event.

    The myriad costs reported for the LeAnn Rimes performance itself included $75,000 for "musical entertainment fee," $25,000 for "event management" paid to Nashville-based Maximum Artist Management, and nearly $55,000 for hotel rooms and catering paid to the W Hotel, a couple of blocks from the White House.
