Last weekend, Boulder-based visionary artist Phil Lewis teamed up with Elevations Credit Union to raise thousands of dollars for a fund the financial organization launched in support of the victims’ families and employees impacted by the March 22 King Soopers shooting.

“Building community is something I cherish here at the gallery, and we have such a supportive and caring crew,” Lewis said. “I am humbled. The amount of orders that poured in from all over the country was also incredible.”

Lewis donated $2,933, 50% of all proceeds from gallery sales over the allotted days. Elevations Credit Union then matched his generous donation, resulting in a collective amount of $5,866 going into the fund.

“When I heard they were going to be matching all donations, it was a no-brainer to join forces,” Lewis said.
