BROOKFIELD, Wis (WSAU) Wisconsin’s two biggest sports celebrities raised thousands-of-dollars last night to help children who lost their mothers in the recent shooting massacre in Brookfield.
Brewers’ outfielder Ryan Braun and Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers held an event at their “8-12” Restaurant in Brookfield. The event was sold out in less than a day. It raised over $20,000, just by the advance sale of more than 200 tickets – and a silent auction raised much more.
All proceeds went to the children of the three women killed the Azana Spa-and-Salon on October 21st – Maelyn Lind, Cary Robuck, and the gunman’s estranged wife, Zina Haughton.
