ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -

A star-studded Signing Day event at the University of Michigan has helped raise more than $110,000 for the Chad Tough Foundation.

Part of the Signing of the Stars event on Wednesday served as a fundraiser for the foundation named after former University of Michigan football coach Lloyd Carr's 5-year-old grandson, Chad, who died late last year from an incurable brain cancer. The mission of the Chad Tough Foundation is to fund research and raise awareness for pediatric brain tumors.

Current football coach Jim Harbaugh is credited with attracting an array of celebrities and more than 3,500 fans to the event, where the newest class of Wolverines was announced.

The event featured visits from famous athletes such as Tom Brady, Derek Jeter and Ric Flair.
