Trump, Affleck and others raise $$ for Jimmy Fund

Donald Trump, Ben Affleck, Billy Ray Cyrus, Jon Cryer and other celebrities have helped raise more than $2.8 million in a radio-telethon for the Jimmy Fund, the children's cancer-fighting charity favored by the Boston Red Sox.

The all-day fund-raiser on WEEI-AM radio and New England Sports Network cable television station passed its goal of $2.6 million by 12:30 a.m. Saturday and was continuing to accept online donations through the weekend.

Trump, a telethon guest who also threw out the first pitch at the second game of a Red Sox-Yankees doubleheader, donated $60,000 that moved the total ahead of last year's $2.3 million.
