Despite the 12 people who died and the 70 persons injured in Friday’s Colorado massacre, Republican Broward County Sheriff Al Lamberti will proceed with his $30 per-person Dark Knight fundraiser in Florida on Monday night.
“Enjoy a night out to see the hottest movie of the summer The Dark Knight Rises while supporting Sheriff Lamberti,” reads the Facebook invite to the event in Deerfield Beach Florida.
The invitation does not mention the Colorado shooting. Lamberti is running for re-election in November.
“Lamberti expressed his condolences and said that ‘to create some good out of what is a tragic situation,’ he’d donate an unspecified portion of the proceeds from his movie night to support the affected families,” The Sun Sentinel reports.
