Landmarks to light up for cancer telethon

NEW YORK (AP) — More than a dozen landmarks across the U.S. and Canada will light up to promote next week's "Stand Up to Cancer" telethon.

Organizers say the buildings that will be illuminated starting Friday include Rockefeller Center in New York, Toronto's CN tower and the Wrigley Building in Chicago.

The hourlong cancer fund-raiser will air Sept. 5 on 31 U.S. broadcast and cable networks.

It will also air on Canadian networks and will stream live on Hulu and Yahoo in the U.S.

The landmarks that will light up for the telethon will include Houston City Hall, the Parthenon in Nashville and the Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica Pier.

All the lights will be some combination of red, orange, yellow or white.
