The cast of hit TV show Lost joined forces to host a Hawaiian fundraiser on Saturday (10SEP05) to raise money for victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The event, which was organised by series star Harold Perrineau, was held in Waikiki and raised $20,250 (GBP11,250).

Matthew Fox, who plays hunky surgeon Jack Sheppard in the show, says, "This is how we're trying to help. Raise some money and maybe, just maybe, ease someone's suffering.

"I have some friends down in Louisiana. It's been really tough on them."
