Chris Wolpert to Award Check at Fort Steilacoom Event


LAKEWOOD – The Grave Concerns Association will receive a $4,000 check from Modern Woodmen Fraternal Insurance Company as a result of a matching funds event that was held earlier this year at Joeseppi's.  Grave Concerns received 20% of the proceeds that night and earned funds through silent auction, raffle and donations. 


Funds will be used to purchase markers to identify individuals buried in the historic Western State Hospital Cemetery and for special projects. Twenty seven additional markers will be installed by Lakewood First Baptist Church R.O.C. youth group on Wednesday, June 29. This event will be an activity held in conjunction with a 30 Hour Famine Event to benefit World Vision projects.
