Steve Smith Donates $100,000 to Aurora victims

Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith has pledged to donate $100,000 to assist with the medical bills incurred by victims of last week’s theater shooting in Aurora, Colo, the Associated Press reports.

The money will be given to the city and distributed to victims’ families in need.

“As a father and husband, I cannot imagine the pain and suffering the victims are going through,” Smith, a five-time Pro Bowl pick, said in a statement. “My family’s hearts and prayers are extended to theirs, and I hope this contribution might assist in paying some of the medical bills that will help allow these families to move forward in this tragic circumstance.”

    Two great big thumbs up to Smitty for stepping up and doing this. This is the kind of generosity that is seen all to rarely any more. You’ve become one hell of a class act Steve!
