Gabriel Nielsen, 33, was killed in a hit-and-run accident on June 25 when a drunk driver struck his Nissan on Nelson Road east of 63rd Street, according to reports.
Nielsen’s sister, 35-year-old Cherish Francis, and his 2-year-old daughter, Avery Nielsen, were seriously injured in the crash.
Nielsen had been to Twisted Pine’s Ale House a few times, and the brewing company is holding this benefit to help his family cover medical expenses from the accident, says Emily Valenta, Ale House manager.
Twisted Pine Ale House is located at 3201 Walnut St., Suite A, in Boulder.
