Bears tight end
Kellen Davis hosted a fundraiser Saturday evening in Chicago for the family of the Bears fan who was killed in Jacksonville the night before last weekend's game.
Davis set up the fundraiser, which was held from 5-9 p.m. Saturday at John Barleycorn (3524 N. Clark Street) near Wrigley Field. Bears guard
Fans can also donate to the family via a website Davis created.
"As a Chicago Bear I would like to support this family in any way I can by passing along an easy way to donate, whether it's $5, $10 or $100," Davis says on the website.
"Karen Pettry is a stay-at-home mom. Chris had his own business and provided for the family. Through a violent, senseless act, Chris can no longer provide for Karen and their three children."
As of Friday morning, 99 contributors had donated more than $3,900 toward the goal of $50,000.
"My thoughts and prayers go out to the Pettry family," wrote one contributor from Colorado. "I love all of the support from our big Chicago Bears family."
