Also, a special Las Vegas Victims' Fund was set up by Las Vegas' Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak through a Go Fund Me. The Oakland Raiders' NFL team, which will soon be relocating to Las Vegas, donated $50,000 to this fund. This page is also benefitting from donations by thousands of individual citizens, many in modest increments, and this fund was nearing its goal of $2.5 million.
