A benefit will be held on Thursday, September 25th at Herman’s Hideaway, 1578 South Broadway, Englewood, CO, for the Family of David Ludewig. Multiple bands and artists will perform. Help friends and family celebrate the life of David Ludewig. Everyone is welcome. All proceeds will benefit David and Kirstey’s unborn baby. Much love for all who have reached out to our family. The benefit will run from 7:00 p.m. until midnight.

David Ludewig: RIP. My loving cousin and friend. I love you and will miss you. The actions of an over zealous gun-carrying security guard took you from us. It was my pleasure to live at your side and to be holding you when you took your final breath. I only wish it was me, dear David. We carry you in our hearts. Until we meet again — Your cousin Johnny.
