NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers and National League MVP Ryan Braun own a restaurant together in Brookfield, Wis., and now the Packers and Brewers stars are teaming up for something more significant in their community.


Brookfield, a western suburb of Milwaukee, is the site of the Azana Salon & Spa, where three employees were killed and four other women were wounded Sunday by a gunman who later took his own life.


Rodgers and Braun, owners of the 8-Twelve MVP Bar & Grill in Brookfield, are intent on helping the families of the victims of that shooting and, along with partner Omar Shaikh, will hold a benefit at the restaurant. All of the proceeds will go to those affected by the shooting, and more details will be announced Monday, according to WTMJ-4 TV in Milwaukee.


"It's 100 percent because of the community," Rodgers said Wednesday. "Omar, Ryan and I talked about doing something for the victims. It was a big-time tragedy, so anything we can do to help out is what Omar, Ryan and I are going to do."
