MGM Resorts International, Las Vegas Sands and Caesars Entertainment are assisting victims of the mass shooting at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, as well as victims' families and first responders.

MGM donated $3 million to victims and first responders, and is providing lodging, transportation, food and grief counseling to victims and their families. The company owns and operates the Mandalay Bay.

"There are simply no words to express our grief and outrage over this senseless and horrific attack on our community," said MGM Resorts International CEO Jim Murren. “With this donation, we hope to make a difference to those who were harmed and those who are left behind.”

Las Vegas Sands has established a $4 million relief fund for victims, families and first responders -- $2 million each from Sands Cares and the Adelson Family Foundation.

Caesars Entertainment, along with its workers and entertainers, said they would commit $2 million toward relief aid. The company also said its restaurant partners -- including Guy Fieri, Bobby Flay, Gordon Ramsay and Giada de Laurentiis – will produce an event to honor those impacted by the massacre.
