MSG telethon and online auction to help those affected by Sandy
The MSG Network will host a fundraiser to support the relief and rebuilding efforts for those affected by Superstorm Sandy during tomorrow's telecast of the Knicks-Mavericks' game.
The evening’s net proceeds, along with money raised through an online auction, will be split between the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City and the American Red Cross to assist those throughout the tri-state area who have been impacted by the storm.
Starting with the pregame show viewers can call (212) 465-3900 to purchase $100 raffle tickets that enter them for the chance to win prizes and help those who are dealing with the aftermath of last week’s storm. Winners will be announced Nov. 19
In addition, visit CharityBuzz.com for several high-end experiences and prizes. The online auction will start tomorrow at 6 p.m. and run through 6 p.m. on Nov. 19, with all net proceeds being donated to the aforementioned disaster relief organizations.
