The Reggie Lewis Center Gymnasium will be the venue tonight for a special gathering to support the nationally televised Hope for Haiti telethon. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the televised program starts at 8 p.m. The telethon will be shown on two big screens at the RCC facility.
The event will feature live performances by local artists and a chance for Bostonians rallying around the Haiti crisis to connect under one roof. Representatives from the American Red Cross, Partners in Health, and UNICEF will be in the house to collect funds.
Money raised tonight will be given directly to their representatives.
Tonight's telethon- hosted by George Clooney- will be broadcast on several networks, including CNN and WGBH-2. Scheduled performers include Wyclef, U2, Beyonce, Madonna and others.
