BROOKFIELD, Wis. (AP) - A fundraiser held by the restaurant named for Aaron Rodgers and Ryan Braun raised more than $60,000 for victims' families of a Brookfield spa shooting.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback and Milwaukee Brewers outfielder were not at the event Monday night at 8-Twelve MVP Bar & Grill in Brookfield but donated items for auction.
The pair are partners in the restaurant, which is run by SURG Restaurant Group.
The group's co-owner, Omar Shaikh, says the proceeds go to the eight children left behind by the three women killed at Azana Salon & Spa in Brookfield.
Radcliffe Haughton shot seven women October 21. Three died, including his estranged wife, Zina, before Haughton killed himself.
More than 115 salons, spas and beauty schools are also donating some profits Tuesday to the families.
