The charity show that Jimmy Buffett was added to at the last minute raised over $1.7 million despite being dampened by thunderstorms:

The live television broadcast of the concert was canceled because the outdoor venue on the Great Lawn of the Hilton Hawaiian Village was rained out by a thunder storm.

But organizers moved the concert indoors and broadcasted on radio and the Internet with KSSK morning radio hosts Michael W. Perry and Larry Price.

Not all of the scheduled acts were able to perform, but several did and major Hawaii companies and corporations made good on pre-planned pledges.

By the time the broadcast went off the air just after 4:30 p.m., organizers said they raised $1,758,386.42. Phone lines were still collecting donations until 6 p.m. Sunday.

Buffett performed with ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro.
