Advance response to the fundraiser pasta dinner at Merrill Gardens has been great so far! Thanks to Les Utley, General Manager at The Heathman Hotel, we will be adding a silent auction for a weekend getaway package at the Heathman Hotel.
For those who cannot attend the dinner and have asked about making a donation, checks can be made out to:
Lakewood Independent Guild Charity Fund (LPIG)
The website is www.lpig.us for the Lakewood police guild. They give all funds to the families with no overhead.
Merrill Gardens at Kirkland will be hosting a fundraiser for the fallen police officers in Lakewood on December 9 from 5 to 7p.m. All of the 22 Merrill Gardens communities in Washington State will hold the fundraiser that night.
The communities are planning a big pasta dinner with Baked Ziti with Italian Sausage & Fennel, Caesar Salad, Garlic Bread, Red Velvet Cup Cakes and beverages for a suggested $10 donation. All of the money raised will go to the Lakewood Independent Guild Charity Fund (http://www.lpig.us). Merrill Gardens will donate all the food and beverages.
