Adam Sandler, Jamie Foxx Come Through Strong At Charity Softball Game for CA Victims

Breaking News

Some of biggest stars in the world — from Adam Sandler to Jamie Foxx to Baker Mayfield — came out to Malibu to play in a celeb softball game Sunday to raise a ton of money for a great cause. 

It was all for the California Strong charity … created by MLB stars Christian Yelich, Ryan Braun, Mike Moustakas and NFL star Jared Goff to help out people affected by the CA wildfires and the shooting at the Borderline Bar. 

They called every star they knew … and the stars came out in force to Pepperdine University to help. 

Rainn Wilson, Mira Sorvino, Dennis Rodman, Brad Paisley, Charlie Sheen, Robin Thicke, Rob Riggle, Matt Leinart, Reggie Miller, Justin Turner and more turned up and balled out. 

We’re told the event raised a TON of money — and helped the California Strong organization (in association with the Southeast Ventura County YMCA) cross a lifetime total of $ 1 MILLION in fundraising. 

During the game, several checks were handed out to families affected by the fires — and also to the Borderline Bar to help rebuild. 

The crowd gave a huge ovation to the first responders. 

Props to everyone involved 

Mac Miller Charity Raising Big Money for Youth $700k and Counting!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Mac Miller‘s still making a difference — his charity foundation’s quickly approaching a million bucks in money raised to help kids in his hometown … TMZ has learned.

Folks at The Mac Miller Circles Fund tell us … donations have been pouring in from the late rapper’s fans and the total is up to around $ 350,000. The cash will be used to provide programs and opportunities to underserved youth in the Pittsburgh area, “helping them recognize their full potential through exploration in the arts and community building.”

Add that money to proceeds from the October 31 tribute concert for Mac — which we’re told is expected to be another $ 350k — and the Circles Fund’s hauled in $ 700k since his death.

As we reported … the tribute show, “Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life,” went down at L.A.’s Greek Theatre and featured performances by artists — and some of Miller’s closest friends — like Chance the Rapper, Travis Scott, SZA and John Mayer.

We broke the story … Mac died from an overdose in September. According to the toxicology report, it was the result of “mixed drug toxicity” — specifically fentanyl and cocaine. The Coroner ruled his death accidental.

Mac was 26.
