Monarchy Makes Pledge to Aurora Relief Rund

LOS ANGELES — In the wake of what has now been dubbed by the media as the "Dark Night Massacre," Monarchy Distribution has pledged $10K to the Aurora Victim Relief Fund in support to the victims of one of the most deadliest shootings in U.S. history.

"When I first heard about the shooting something came over me that I  have never felt before," said Monarchy owner Mike Kulich. "My son lives a few miles from where this took place. Although I didn't lose someone that day, it has stayed with me and I knew we had to do something."  

The Aurora Relief Fund, which was founded by Gov. John Hickenlooper in conjunction with the Community First Foundation, will be used strictly to meet the immediate and long-term needs of victims, their families, and the broad needs of those affected in the community by the tragedy.

Kulich added, "My hope is that other studios, novelty companies, and anyone who reads this follow our lead in helping the victims of Aurora. This is an incident that could have happened anywhere and it is important to show our support and lend a helping hand wherever we can."
