Detroit (CBS Detroit) – Celebrities, musicians, and athletes, many with ties to Detroit, are joining together to help feed those in the metro area hit hardest by COVID-19.
CBS 62 and CW50 are teaming up with Forgotten Harvest to air “Feeding Detroit: A Motor City Meal-A-Thon” airing on CW50 Saturday July 4 at 8 pm and streamed live on CBSDetroit.com and CW50Detroit.com.
Hosted by CW50’s Lisa Germani, the fundraiser features Jay Leno, Lily Tomlin, Mitch Albom, Judge Greg Mathis, Kristin Bell, Tony Hawk, Beth Griffith-Manley, Matthew Stafford, Kris Draper, Darren McCarty, and many others.
Kirk Mayes, CEO of Forgotten Harvest, says, “All donations during this virtual event up to $200,000 will be matched! Every dollar donated will help feed twice as many people.”
“Metro Detroiters have consistently shown we come together and lift each other up during difficult times”, said Brian Watson, VP, and General Manager of CBS 62 and CW50.
