MDA TELETHON RAISES $61.5 MILLION
Monday, September 05, 2011
No Jerry Lewis didn't mean no money for the MDA Telethon. The much scaled down Labor Day tradition raised $61.5 million, more than $2.6 million.
The telethon wasn't the same without the man who hosted for 60 years. The show began with each of the co-hosts saying kind words about Mr. Lewis. Nigel Lythgoe claimed Lewis "retired." Neither Lewis nor the MDA have said why he left the telethon, which was onlt 6 hours this year instead of the traditional 20 hours. There probably wasn't a single person who didn't miss Jerry's annual rendition of "You'll Never Walk Alone" at the end of the show.
