Milwaukee Brewers Christian Yelich and Ryan Braun announced they reached their fundraising goal to support wildfire and shooting victims in California. 

The original goal was set at $250,000, and on Wednesday it was bumped up to $500,000. 

To help raise the money, the Brewers are auctioning off fan experiences like a dinner with the MVPs Yelich and Braun, and ticket packages including a meet and greet with Bob Uecker and a ride down Bernie Brewer’s Home Run Slide. 

The money goes directly to the victims of the California wildfires and the Thousand Oaks shooting.
