Carrie Underwood and husband Mike Fisher put their star power to work Thursday night (Oct. 4) when they helped raise $600,000 for Danitas Children.
The couple hosted a star-studded benefit for Danita’s Children, an organization that provides medical care, educational opportunities and food to orphaned and impoverished children in Haiti. In addition, Brad Paisley joined Carrie on stage to provide the entertainment for the evening. Elizabeth Hasselbeck was on hand for the second year to emcee the event.
“I am so humbled and grateful that Mike and Carrie would use their platforms to bring awareness to the great need and suffering of the children of Haiti,” said Danita Estrella Watts, who founded the organization in 1999.
Mike took to social media to thank everyone for their generosity along with those who came out to celebrate the big night.
“Thank you to all who came to @danitaschildren gala last night! We laughed and cried and celebrated a great ministry. Thanks @bradpaisley @thejaredcollection @elisabethhasselbeck you guys are awesome!”
