Chappelle donates concert proceeds to families of Molson Coors victims

Comedian Dave Chappelle surprised Milwaukee last Wednesday when he announced that in less than a week he was coming to Brew City to perform four shows.

Tonight, at the end of his 7 p.m. show at the Pabst Theater, Chappelle surprised audiences again when he said he was donating all of the ticket proceeds to the Molson Coors victims' families.

Allegedly, he came to Milwaukee after hearing about the Molson Coors tragedy because he wanted to contribute to the city's healing. Chappelle performed a benefit show last August in Dayton, Ohio – his hometown – after a mass shooting took place outside a bar.
