'Good Wife' Cast Marks 100 Episodes by Giving Back
October 28, 2013
The usual way to celebrate a show's 100th episode is for the cast to pop champagne and cut a giant cake. But the stars of The Good Wife decided to mark the milestone another way -- by literally rolling up their sleeves to help rebuild homes damaged by Super Storm Sandy.
To coincide with last week's one-year anniversary of Sandy, cast members including Julianna Margulies, Josh Charles, Chris Noth, Matt Czuchry, Archie Panjabi and Zach Grenier teamed up with the non-profit St. Bernard Project to help rebuild New York City homes damaged in the storm.
Margulies also presented St. Bernard Project with a check from The Good Wife for $77,185, which brought the show's total aid commitment to New York's Rockaway Peninsula to $100,000.
"We knew that 100 episodes is a milestone, so how best to reach back and say thank you to New York for letting us shoot here, and giving us such an incredible community to be a part of," Margulies told ET. "People are still suffering and don't have homes, so we're hoping that this just sparks the light again on a really tragic situation here."

The Good Wife can be seen Sundays at 9 p.m. on CBS and the 100th episode is scheduled to air in December.
