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.
