There was at least one big star on the riverfront Sunday afternoon who was giving out some big money.

Cincinnati's own Nick Lachey teamed up with Cincinnati Bell Technology Solutions and other sponsors to raise $150,000 for Purcell Marian High School's practice field and the School For the Creative and Performing Arts, Lachey's alma mater.

"I think going to that school is the reason I'm in show business to begin with," Lachey said on Sunday. "And it really is the reason I have such a passion for music and for performing, so I can't say enough great things about my experience at SCPA."

Lachey is staying in town for Riverfest and the Cincinnati Bell WEBN fireworks, although he didn't say where he's be viewing the show.
