BROOKFIELD, WI (WTAQ) - Survivors of the Brookfield spa shootings are about to get help from an unexpected and very high-profile source.
Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers says he and Milwaukee Brewers’ slugger Ryan Braun are planning a fundraiser for the victims and their families.
Rodgers and Braun own the 8-12 Restaurant in Brookfield. Rodgers says the restaurant makes him and Braun part of the community – so they’re looking for ways to help.
Rodgers told WTMJ Radio in Milwaukee that the restaurant’s partner, Omar Shaikh, is still finalizing plans for the fundraiser. Rodgers said all of the proceeds will go to help the victims.
Radcliffe Haughton killed his wife, two others, and himself at the Azana Salon and Spa last Sunday, and four other women were wounded.
