The Wahlberg brothers, who are starring in a reality television show called "Wahlburgers" about their restaurant near Boston, sold 100 tickets in just an hour for a screening of the series premiere.

"Wahlburgers," which airs Jan. 22 at 10:30 p.m. on A&E, will show the three Wahlberg brothers – Mark, Donnie and Paul – as they operate their Hingham-based restaurant. The  tickets the Wahlbergs sold was part of a fundraiser for urban youth at the Dorchester Youth Collaborative, according to Boston.com.

"It's all about the Dorchester Youth Collaborative, and the money is going to benefit them, so I’m really happy for them," Paul Wahlberg, chef and co-owner of Wahlburgers, said.

Wahlbergs took to social media on Wednesday to announce the available tickets for their reality show premiere.

Two hours later, Wahlburgers sent out another tweet, announcing that there were no more tickets.

Paul Wahlberg told Boston.com that others will be able to make donations to the collaborative during the "Wahlburgers" premiere.

"It's a program that Mark (Wahlberg) has been affiliated with for a long time," Paul Wahlberg said. "We're very excited for it, and they were excited as well. It's a great program, what they do over there is amazing."

The "Wahlburgers" reality series will give viewers a glimpse of the Wahlbergs' daily lives and the family restaurant. The reality series will show Mark and Donnie returning to Boston to join forces with Paul, who they call the "most talented (Wahlberg) sibling."

The restaurant will show the longtime Wahlberg friends and family members, including Johnny "Drama" Alves, Henry "Nacho" Laun and Billy Leonard.

"We're thrilled to partner with the entire Wahlberg family as they graciously lift the curtain to share this new side of their story," David McKillop, executive vice president and general manager of A&E said. "This series offers viewers a new take on the celebrity reality series showcasing one of America's favorite families."
