The Los Angeles Rams will conduct a pair of fundraising efforts at Sunday’s game on behalf of those affected by the fires in Los Angeles and Ventura counties.
Select Rams players will auction off their game-worn jerseys at nfl.com/auction with proceeds benefiting the Conejo Valley Victims Fund and American Red Cross Southern California Wildfire Relief.
Bidding is underway on the jerseys, including those worn by team captains Jared Goff, Todd Gurley, Johnny Hekker, Michael Brockers and Andrew Whitworth.
All proceeds from Sunday’s 50/50 raffle will also benefit the Conejo Valley Victims Fund (established by the Ventura County Community Foundation) and American Red Cross Southern California Wildfire Relief.
A moment of silence will be held before the national anthem for those affected by Wednesday’s mass shooting at the Borderline bar in Thousand Oaks that left 13 dead, including Ventura County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Ron Helus and the shooter.
Whitworth, an offensive tackle, said he will donate his check from the game against the Seattle Seahawks at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to the Ventura County Community Foundation’s Conejo Valley Victims Fund, to support relief and recovery efforts for the families of the victims of the mass shooting.
