The fund-raising event for famlies of the shooting victims in South Alabama has reached $47,000 in cash, checks and coins plus caskets and vaults for the dead that could send the total to $100,000.
WAAO radio station owner Blaine Wilson organized the event hoping to get $10,000. He said Saturday it was amazing what a town of 36,000 can do when it pulls together.
The Covington Casket Company provided caskets for the 10 victims and another Andalusia business, McNeill Inc/McNeil Concrete offered to provide the burial vaults.
Michael McLendon, 28, shot 10 people, including five family members, before killing himself Tuesday afternoon in the worst mass killing in Alabama history.
