Fans of a television show who were raising money for a Lawrence homeless shelter have met their $2,000 goal.

Dana Stodgel, of Illinois, a member of the fan group Fandom Rocks for the CW network series "Supernatural," will be in Lawrence Sept. 2 to present at least a $1,000 donation to Lawrence Community Shelter, 214 W. 10th St.

The members of the fan group have been raising money online through their Web site, www.fandom-rocks.com, to split equally between the shelter and international charity SOS Children's Villages. They chose the shelter because the show features a fictional family from Lawrence.

Originally, organizers hoped to raise $1,000, but they met that goal in mid-July. Donations put them over the new $2,000 goal on Wednesday, and the fundraiser continues until Sept. 1.
