"We just wanted to show our support for these families. It was such a tragedy and we just wanted to be a part of it and show our support for everybody else," said Lisa Vaughn, who attended the fundraiser.

All of the proceeds from entry fees and concessions will go to the deputies' families.

The families of the fallen deputies received the Sheriff's Cross Award.
