WASHINGTON (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — All five living former U.S. presidents will attend a hurricane relief concert at Texas A&M University later this month.
That’s according to the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation, which issued a statement Wednesday saying “all ticket sales and other proceeds” from the October 21 event will go to storm recoveries in Texas, Florida and the Caribbean. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma walloped the U.S. states and Hurricane Maria knocked out all power to Puerto Rico and damaged other islands.READ MORE: Judge Begins Key Hearing On Boy Scouts Bankruptcy Plan
