HOUSTON—A group gathered at the Saint Arnold Brewery on Saturday to help a Texas man who survived James Holmes’ violent rampage in a Colorado movie theater.
Brent Lowak, 27, is from Bulverde, near San Antonio. He was in Aurora visiting an old girlfriend when the shooting happened and he was hit by a bullet.
Lowak’s Houston friends held the fundraiser to show him support.
"He’s always been there and he’s selfless. Every single person has story of how Brent helped out, never asked for anything in return. Everybody that knows him, they don’t just like Brent, they love Brent," said Haley Polak.
Lowak is back at his Bulverde home. He’s improving but still needs lots of rehab.
He doesn’t have health insurance so several fundraisers have been held to help with his medical bills.
If you’d like to help, you can donate to the "Brent Lowak Survivor Expense Fund" at any Wells Fargo branch.
