Personally, I felt sick when I woke up to the news of the shooting and was just devastated hearing about what the LGBTQ+ community is going through. We want to be an ally and to help our Colorado Springs community heal any way possible. That’s why we started MAGIC FM Cares For Club Q. We thank everyone who bids on these very special auction items – and also thank our artist friends and supporters who really stepped up to donate some one-of-a-kind items that music fans will love.”
