As many of you know, the cities of El Paso, Texas, and here in Dayton, Ohio, are reeling from the mass shootings that have left 31 people dead. In El Paso, on Saturday, August 3rd, a gunman opened fire at a Walmart and killed 22 people and injured 22 others. Less than a day later, on August 4th, 9 people were killed and 27 others were injured when a gunman opened fire in the Historic Oregon District here in Dayton. That’s just 100 yards from our firm’s front door. This isn’t something we can throw gloves on and help with like we could for the tornados.
So, once again, we are helping to raise money for the families left behind. We wish this raffle were happening under different circumstances. However, given the tremendous success of the last raffle, we feel confident we will be able to have the same success, if not more, for the ones mourning their losses from these senseless acts of violence.
There are a couple of options you have, if you choose to donate:
The Dayton Foundation has established an Oregon District Tragedy Fund for the victims’ families.
Public Good has also launched a fundraiser for victims in both Dayton and in El Paso, Texas.
The Dayton Daily News also has a roundup of local businesses that are helping the grieving community and pitching in by donating profits, hosting a potluck and collecting funds for the victims and families.
Local residents are also requesting help — from supplies to donations — on Facebook’s crisis response page to the shooting.
With the help of our friends from the Cincinnati Reds marketing team, we were able to put together yet another, fantastic package to offer the raffle winners!
