An event tonight from the Colorado Springs Medical Cannabis Council, held at the Warehouse Restaurant and Gallery, was originally supposed to host the senior director of enforcement for the Colorado Department of Revenue. The idea was, you pay $10 and get a chance to learn more about upcoming industry developments.
The Waldo Canyon Fire has changed all that, so instead the 7:30 event will not feature George Thomson, and will serve a larger cause.
"This mixer will now be a FREE event, but we ask you to bring cash/check donations, non-perishable foods, pet foods, water, etc to donate to the Red Cross and other organizations in need at this time," reads the CSMCC's notification. "100% of the proceeds will go to help the fire victims, so we encourage each of you to come out and join us in bringing relief to our community. This event is open to the public, so please help us spread the word and hopefully we can collect many donations for victims!"
