AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – A portion of ticket sales from a screening of “Captain America” Monday night is going directly to the nonprofit group “Aurora Rise,” which supports victims and survivors of the theater shootings.
Aurora Rise is a group that was founded by a family member of one of the victims. It offers financial support to those affected by the tragedy.
The “Captain America” screening was hosted by The Movie Tavern in Aurora.
“Especially with the upcoming trial, it’s even more important to connect with the community and the people that are impacted,” said Megan Sullivan, organizer and family member of a shooting victim.
Aurora Rise hosts several other benefits throughout the year.
