“Dear PoPville,

I was a close friend of Matt Shlonsky, the American University alum who was killed in the Shaw Metro shooting in August. Since that time, a group of Matt’s friends and I have established a Memorial Fund in his name with American University’s School of International Service. The Matt Shlonsky Memorial Fund was established within American University’s School of International Service this fall.

This event will be the second fundraiser for the Fund, and is scheduled for 7:00pm on February 11th at Town Hall in Glover Park [2340 Wisconsin Ave NW]. The goal is to raise an additional few thousand dollars, as well as spread awareness about the Fund and our goals. So far we have raised close to $25,000, which is half way to our goal of $50,000, at which point the Fund will exist in perpetuity.”

    It’s heartbreaking every time I see a picture of him. I never met him, but he just *looks* like one of those people who would be a “good guy”. You know how sometimes right when you see someone the first time you get that feeling? Just so tragic this happened to him. I doubt I can make the fundraiser, but I’ll look them up online and make a donation.
