Columbine gift under scrutiny – Contribution would help build library

 | 

The owner of several strip clubs wants to donate 600,000 shares of stock — valued at $450,000 — to help build a new library at Columbine High School, the Associated Press reports. 

Troy Lowrie decided on the contribution at the request of Angela Sanders, one of his strippers and the daughter of teacher Dave Sanders, who was killed in the Columbine shootings.

Lowrie plans to donate his stock in an outdoor advertising company to a group of Columbine survivors and family members trying to raise $3.1 million to replace the old school library, AP says. 

The group has not decided whether to accept the donation.

Lowrie says he hopes his business dealings will not stop the group from accepting the gift, AP says.
