Suds Sports Grill in Huntington Beach became a fundraising site Friday evening, as Megan Hyde, a former resident of Aurora, Colo., held a benefit concert, raffle and auction to raise money for three of her friends who were wounded in the theater shooting. Three bands — Rebellion 68, WKWS and With Strangers — took the stage along with a DJ, while customers bid on an autographed hockey stick, framed Angels portraits, a skateboard and more. According to Hyde, the event raised more than $2,000.
