The Stars In the House series debuted at the onset of the COVID-19 lockdown in March, featuring stars performing from their homes to promote charitable causes.

Next week’s episode featuring the Family Ties cast will raise money for The Actors Fund, which was founded in 1882.

The Actors Fund is described as, ‘a national human services organization here to meet the needs of our entertainment community with a unique understanding of the challenges involved in a life in the arts.’

‘We’re so thankful that our audiences continue to generously donate to StarsInTheHouse.com, which goes directly to The Actors Fund, helping anyone in the artistic community with essential needs like financial support to buy groceries, pay rent and pay doctor’s bills,’ Rudetsky and Wesley said in a statement. 

‘We’re overwhelmed with gratitude that we raised over $15,000 during Tuesday’s all-day ‘Vote-a-thon’ broadcast,’ they added.

‘During this time of what seems like unending national stress, we find that our audiences are drawn to reunions of what we call ‘comfort TV,’ those TV shows from yesteryear that brought us all so much joy,’ they added.
