    Jay Leno Earns Over $90,000 For Gulf Coast Recovery - Late night host performed his comedy act and donated his salary

    The Associated Press reports that more than 1,000 people watched talk show host Jay Leno perform Saturday night at the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino in Biloxi to raise money for the Gulf Coast Community Foundation. Tickets were $40 to $150 and at the end of the show, Leno presented one of those oversized checks that look like those given to the winners of the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes, in the impressive amount of $90,336 to foundation president Rich Westfall. Leno even wrote a check with some of his own money to make up the difference and to top off the evening's fundraising total at about $100,000.

    What else can be done to help the Gulf Coast? Big ups to Jay for his work this past weekend.
