A woman donates money for Brian Stow at Dodger Stadium on April 11, 2011. Stow was severely beaten by two men wearing Dodger clothing, likely because Stow was wearing Giants clothing.

People drove through Dodger Stadium Parking Lot 1 today to donate money for San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow, who was seriously beaten at Dodger Stadium on Opening Day.

There's a steady stream of cars driving into Parking Lot 1 at Dodger Stadium. Over 100 volunteers in yellow jackets with the ambulance company American Medical Response are greeting motorists with applause, tears and thank yous.

The volunteers here have partnered with the Dodgers to raise money to help with Stow's medical bills. Some of the proceeds will go to Stow's two children.

This morning a variety of people donated from all over L.A. County – some baseball fans, some not, but all concerned about Stow's recovery as he continues to lie in a coma at L.A. County/USC Medical Center.

People have donated from $10 to $100 in cash and checks. Volunteers are collecting the money in blue plastic bins.

Stow, 42, was wearing Giants attire when two men wearing Dodgers clothing assaulted him. The suspects are still at large.
