Oct. 2 (UPI) -- The Oakland Raiders have donated $50,000 to a relief fund for the victims of Sunday's mass shooting in Las Vegas.
Clark County commission chair Steve Sisolak started a GoFundMe campaign for the victims on Monday. The campaign had raised more than $1 million as of Monday afternoon, more than half of its $2 million goal.
"I'm Steve Sisolak, Clark County Commission Chair from Las Vegas," Sisolak wrote as the campaign's description. "We are raising funds to assist the victims of the tragic Las Vegas shooting. I spent last night with Sheriff Lombardo at Clark County's only level-one trauma center."
"Funds will be used to provide relief and financial support to the victims and families of the horrific Las Vegas mass shooting."
More than 12,000 entities contributed to the fund. The Raiders contributed one of nine donations of $50,000. Clicking on the Raiders' donation on the site brings you to a page for Marc Badain, the president of the Raiders.
Oakland also issued a statement on the tragic events on Monday afternoon. "The Raiders family is shocked and saddened by the tragedy in Las Vegas and our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, families and first responders," the statement said. "The heart of the Raider Nation goes out to Las Vegas."
The Raiders' new stadium in Las Vegas is planned for construction less than one mile from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, the site from where the shooter took aim at crowds attending the Route 91 Harvest country music festival.
The Raiders are planning to play the 2020 season in Las Vegas.
