Denver, CO June 27, 2012 – A vigil will be held for the officer at 5 p.m. before the already scheduled concert on Sunday. In order to show our support, local jazz legend Purnell Steen (of Purnell Steen and Le Jazz Machine) is encouraging all musicians to come out in solidarity for Officer Hollis.
“This was a tragic event and a beautiful young, single mother and a valuable member of the Denver Police Department lost her life,” Public Safety Manager Alex Martinez said.
We should not let this tragic shooting tarnish the hard work and dedication of so many over the years. “We will put our arms around this family and this child, and make sure they know there is a city that absolutely loves them,” – Mayor Hancock
Come stand in harmony with musical artists, community leaders, and music lovers, Sunday July 1, 2012 at the City Park Jazz Festival.
“This is a great event,” Hancock said. “By no certain terms will we allow for a few to tarnish a special event in this city that occurs every year.”
