Billy Crystal helped donate $1 million to a relief fund in Long Island, New York, on Saturday (22.06.13).

The 65-year-old actor, who moved to the area when he was a toddler, announced the generous gift to hundreds of local victims of Hurricane Sandy, which devastated parts of the Caribbean and U.S. last October, while standing on a newly installed part of the town's beach boardwalk.

The 'When Harry Met Sally' star revealed that $112,000 of the donation will come from his own family and he helped raise the remaining $888,000 at the annual fundraising event Celebrity Fight Night in March, which usually raises money for the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center at Barrow Neurological Institute and other charities, according to

It was a good weekend for Billy, whose new movie 'Monsters University' topped the U.S. box office ahead of Brad Pitt's film 'World War Z' and took in $82 million.

The actor provided the voice of the one-eyed green creature Mike Wazowski in the Disney animated film and previously revealed that his grandchildren drove him crazy by making him constantly do the voice of the character at home.

He said: ''My grandkids, when they started to understand what I did, because they didn't know, the first thing they saw was 'Monsters, Inc.' so then for six months I had to talk like Mike Wazowski. It drove me crazy.''
