The Arizona Diamondbacks (@Dbacks) have raised $705,395 in support of the families of the 19 firefighters who perished fighting the Yarnell fire as well as members of the community who have been affected by the fires.

The money was raised in various fundraising efforts that began two days after the June 30 tragedy and throughout the D-backs 10-game homestand. The funds raised throughout the homestand will benefit the 100 Club of Arizona, American Red Cross, Prescott Firefighters Charities and other charities that will assist in the rebuilding efforts.

50/50 Raffle: The D-backs 50/50 Raffle, which is held at every home game, raised $354,061 in total, with $177,031 going to the raffle winners and $177,031 benefitting the charities. In addition, the D-backs set a 50/50 Raffle record on July 5 with more than $100,000 raised in one night.

Online donations: More than 5,000 fans donated online for a total of $252,364. The Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation added $200,000 with a matching grant for a total of $452,364 raised. Fans who donated at least $19 online at dbacks.com/19 were entered into a raffle to win a team autographed “Yarnell 19” jersey.

Online auction: The D-backs raised $76,000 through an online jersey and nameplate auction held online at dbacks.com/auctions during the homestand. The D-backs auctioned off the newly created game-worn and autographed black “Arizona” tribute jerseys that players and coaches wore throughout the entire homestand as well as autographed player and coaches nameplates that feature the “19” logo.

Starting next homestand, fans will be able to purchase a T-shirt replica of the black “Arizona” tribute jerseys for $28 at the Team Shop located at Chase Field. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the T-shirt sales will benefit the 100 Club of Arizona, American Red Cross, Prescott Firefighters Charities and other charities that will assist in the rebuilding efforts. The T-shirts were made possible by a partnership between the D-backs, MLB Properties, Gameday Merchandising and Majestic Athletic and will be available while supplies last.
