Despite losing his house in the Santa Rosa fire, Raiders legend Cliff Branch made his way to Las Vegas to help those affected by the 1 October shooting.

Commissioner Steve Sisolak tweeted on Thursday that both Branch and Raiders owner Mark Davis were in Las Vegas to raise money for the Las Vegas Victims' Fund.

According to Clark County officials, the NFL and the Raiders have donated a combined total of $100,000 for the fund. As of this writing, the fund has raised a total of $10.6 million for those affected by the 1 October shooting.

Attorney Kenneth R. Feinberg, known for his role in helping victims of the Pulse Night Club shooting and the Boston Marathon bombing, will lead the effort to distribute money from the Las Vegas Victims' Fund.
