NOW: Milwaukee-area bars plan ’community toast’ to benefit families of Molson Coors shooting victims

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A fundraiser for the families of the Molson Coors shooting victims is in the planning stages, and it's an event that's uniquely Milwaukee.

On April 18, dozens of local bars will raise a glass of Miller product and toast the families and the victims of the tragedy. 

People attending will pay a fee, and the money will go toward helping the families affected.

This show of unity and support is appropriately called, "Raise Your Glass."

"People seem to need something like that -- that they could join together and to commemorate, and it really is a tribute to those people that lost their lives, and it will definitely help support the families," said event organizer Dianne Crowley. 

The list of bars participating is long already, and it could get longer. 

The event will start at 2 p.m. and run until 3:30. For more information, click here
