DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A number of businesses in the Miami Valley are holding benefits and meals to benefit the victims of the Oregon District mass shooting and to bring the community together.

The Warped Wing Brewing Company in Dayton announced it would open on Sunday and donate all sales to go towards the victims of the mass shooting in the Oregon District early Sunday morning.

“We’ve discussed at length and have made the difficult decision to open today because we won’t let fear and hate rule our community,” the brewery said in a Facebook post. “We also want to be a place where the community can come be together.”

The brewery announced that all sales from the Taproom on Sunday will go towards “helping the victims and their families and our friends in the Oregon District.”

Lily’s Bistro, located near the scene of the shooting in the Oregon District, also held a potluck on Sunday at 3 pm. People were asked to bring what they want, but “just friendship is all we ask.” Lily’s provided fried chicken and sides.

Proceeds from the potluck will go towards a server at Blind Bob’s, who was injured in the shooting.
