BROOKFIELD (WKOW) -- 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 did not attend Monday evening's event 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 will go to the eight children left behind by the three women killed at Azana Salon & Spa in Brookfield on October 21.
More than 115 salons, spas and beauty schools are also donating some profits Tuesday to the families.
