All five living former presidents of the United States took to the stage Saturday night at a benefit concert here to raise funds for the victims of recent hurricanes that hit various parts of the country.
 
本周六晚,美国在世的五任前总统在一场慈善音乐会上登台亮相,为近期国内遭受飓风危害的灾民募集善款。
 
 
Former presidents Jimmy Carter, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama appeared together on stage at the "One America Appeal" fundraiser at the A&M University in College Station, about 140 km northwest of Houston, Texas.
 
Sitting president Donald Trump1 did not attend the event. Instead, he sent a video message thanking the former presidents for their efforts in helping2 with hurricane relief.
 
The event was originally aimed at raising funds for victims of Hurricane Harvey, which hit the Texas Gulf3 Coast on Aug. 25 and killed more than 80 people. It was later expanded to help those affected4 by subsequent Hurricane Irma that battered5 Florida and Hurricane Maria that thrashed Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin6 Islands.
