The Dallas Cowboys raised more than $2.3 million in donations Thursday night for those impacted by Harvey with a live telethon.

On the same field where they held their final preseason practice, about 30 current and former Cowboys teamed up to host a live telethon on the AT&T Stadium sideline.



As Cowboys took calls, the 90-minute telethon was televised and streamed live on Facebook and Periscope to encourage fans to call in and help out.

Wide receiver Dez Bryant recognized a familiar voice on the phone about an hour into the telethon, when the Cowboys say owner/general manager Jerry Jones called to make a million-dollar pledge.



The Cowboys provided a practice space Monday and Tuesday at Ford Center at The Star in Frisco for the Houston Texans, who flew in last weekend following their preseason game against the Saints.
