Honoring Club Q Survivors
The tragic shooting at Club Q in Colorado Springs in November has haunted us all. The actions of one person does not represent an entire community. We know that our Colorado Springs community is filled with amazing people. Although some time has passed, the victims will not be forgotten. 1350 Distilling is partnering with fellow veteran-owned Elev8 Glass Gallery and Elev8 Veterans nonprofit to help raise money for the families affected by the horrendous event that killed five beautiful neighbors: Daniel Aston, Raymond Green Vance, Kelly Loving, Ashley Paugh and Derrick Rump.
The victims will not be forgotten.
Elev8 Glass Gallery has created five amazing glasses in memory of the five victims taken too soon. These glasses will be on view at our 1350 Distilling Taste Lounge for the next month.
