Last year's Jerry Lewis Telethon raised 59.4 million dollars, thanks to contributions from a slew of stars, including Elton.

And this weekend, the Rocket Man will help out again, according to  the September 4-10, 2005 TV Guide.

Now in its fourth decade, the Muscular Dystrophy Association benefit will also feature names like Tony Orlando, Rich Little and Loretta Lynn.

It all begins Sunday night and continues through Labor Day. Viewers should check their local schedules for more specifics.
