A benefit was held in Chicago for the victims of the devastating floods in Pakistan last summer.

Several TV personalities were there to help raise funds.

The event was sponsored by the Pakistani Entrepreneurs Network.

The floods started last July.

The Pakistani government says 20 million people were affected and nearly 2,000 were killed.

The organizers of the event say many are still without food, shelter, clean water and medical care.
