Jerry Seinfeld donating to Nashville flood relief
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Jerry Seinfeld didn’t find the floods in Nashville funny.
The comedian says he is donating all the proceeds from Friday’s show at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center to a pair of charities to aid flood relief. The center is just a few blocks from flood damage in downtown.
He’s one of dozens of stars and organizations who have offered help after a deadly string of storms caused widespread flooding in Tennessee.
Thousands of homes were damaged or destroyed and more than 34 people died across three states, including 22 in Tennessee.
The proceeds from Seinfeld’s show will be split between the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.
