Taylor Swift donates $100,000 to family of woman killed in parade shooting

On February 16, 2024, it was reported that Taylor Swift has made a generous donation of $100,000 to the family of Lisa Lopez-Galvan, the woman who was tragically killed in a shooting at the Kansas City Chiefs' Super Bowl victory parade. The singer's representative confirmed the donations, which were made through two $50,000 contributions on a GoFundMe page. The Associated Press independently verified the posts.

In the messages accompanying the donations, Swift expressed her deepest sympathies and condolences to the family. Lisa Lopez-Galvan, 43, was shot while celebrating the Chiefs' Super Bowl win with her husband, son, and numerous other fans at Union Station in Kansas City. She was a well-known local radio host and had deep roots in the community. The GoFundMe page, which was set up to support the family, had already raised over $200,000 by Friday morning.

In addition to Lisa Lopez-Galvan's tragic death, the shooting also left 22 others injured, including several minors. The police are still investigating the incident and are trying to identify the person responsible. They currently have two juveniles in custody and are looking into whether others were involved.

It is worth noting that Taylor Swift was not present at the parade as she was busy performing in Melbourne, Australia as part of her Eras tour. However, she has a connection to the Kansas City Chiefs as she is dating their tight end, Travis Kelce. The Chiefs organization confirmed that all players, coaches, staff, and their families were safe and accounted for after the shooting.

Overall, this news highlights Taylor Swift's generosity in supporting the family of the shooting victim and shines a light on the tragic incident that occurred at the Kansas City Chiefs' Super Bowl victory parade. The investigation into the shooting is ongoing, and the community continues to rally together to provide support and condolences to the affected families.
