The Crooked Cup helps the family of a fallen Adams County officer


The owner of The Crooked Cup has announced he will be donating all profits on Wednesday January 31st from all five Northern Colorado locations to the family of Heath Gumm, the officer recently killed in Adams County.

“Helping to donate is such a tiny act in comparison to what these brave men and women do on a daily basis to keep our communities safe. They should all be commended for their bravery and strength, and we will do everything we can to do our small part for the Gumm family during this horrible time,” said Gabriel Armstrong, Owner of the Crooked Cup. “Myself and the entire team at The Crooked Cup proudly support all police and first responders.” said Armstrong.

The Crooked Cup has and always will proudly support and admire all police and first responders. The company staunchly recognizes the sacrifices made for our safety.

“This is an absolute travesty,” said Armstrong. “These incidents are happening at an alarming rate and helping the family is the small part that we can play in helping this family through the worst of situations. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Gumm family and we encourage the communities that we are a part of to help as much as possible.”

Each of the five locations will donate all of its profits. Additional donations for the Gumm family will be accepted.
