Pulse nightclub survivors visit valley to raise money for shooting victims

Nearly six weeks ago a gunman opened fire at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, killing 49 people.
Tonight two of the survivors are in the valley for a fundraiser for the victims.
The fundraiser has been dubbed ‘United for Pulse’ and its goal is to raise $100,000 for Pulse nightclub.
Fox 10’s Marcy Jones has more on this story.
"I was fortunate not to be there that night,” says Pulse Bartender Bobby Mills. “I have worked Latin nights before it just one of those nights that I wasn’t there, so it's crazy to think that I could have been there. I could have been one of the 49, I could have been number 50, you never know." 
Lights, love, and dancing. Today Stacy's at Melrose is choosing to not let hate stop them from celebrating life. 
Bobby Mills has been a bartender for Pulse for 13 years, and says he's touched by the outpouring of support from places like Stacey’s. 
"It's a fantastic feeling to know that even though at a month after the tragedy people are still wanting to donate, still wanting to see what they can do to help still spread the message."
During the 10-hour ‘United for Pulse’ event, hundreds will come out to show their support, something Bobby says is the only way to heal and move forward. 
"Love always wins,” Mills said. “Don't be afraid to live your life. When we say we love our community, by community we mean everybody. It could be Orlando, it could be Florida, it could be the United States, the world has really opened up to us."
This event is being live streamed across the nation. Click here for more information on how you can donate.
