Aspire Capital’s staff was extremely saddened by the news that local Carson City Sheriff’s Deputy, Carl Howell, was killed in the line of duty in August 2015. He left behind his wife and four children. Our firm has a special place in our hearts for the community of Carson City, and in light of such a terrible tragedy, we decided to donate the funds allocated for our 2015 Charitable Donation Program to deputy Howell’s family. We hope that the funds will help them cover some of their expenses in his absence. We will retain the 30+ applications we received for the 2015 Charitable Donation Program for consideration next year.
