A concert aimed at helping injured firefighters and their families raised more than $100,000 over the weekend.

The organization Firefighters Helping Firefighters estimates between 4,000 and 5,000 people came out to the Concert For Heroes at Discovery Green Sunday.

All the proceeds will go to help four firefighters injured in the deadly Southwest Inn fire back in May.
