Launched June 24 – the day after Bennett’s brazen shooting death – the gofundme campaign (www.gofundme.com/paul-bennett-in-memory) had initially aimed to raise $10,000 for the 47-year-old’s wife and two sons.

Three days later, more than $16,000 had been raised and the goal was pushed to $50,000.

As of this morning (Monday), $50,023 had been donated.
