The cast of MTV's "Jersey Shore" will air a live telethon for Hurricane Sandy relief on Thursday, Nov.15. The event marks the network's first ever crowd funding campaign, with the money raised going toward rebuilding Seaside Heights, the setting of where "Jersey Shore" was filmed among other areas devastated by last month's hurricane in the NorthEast.
Many residents across the northeast who have just begun to get their electricity back from the ramifications of superstorm Sandy have now lost it yet again, courtesy of a nor'easter. Wind gusts across Long Island, N.Y. were reported to reach up to 54 mph. Rain and snow on Wednesday also added to the frustration of many New Yorkers and New Jersey occupants.
As residents in the East Coast struggle to get back on their feet after Superstorm Sandy lashed out late Monday early Tuesday, NBC Universal announced on Thursday that it plans to hold a live benefit concert to aid victims affected by the harsh weather.
