The Lauren Project to host annual auction and benefit
September 5, 2017
The Lauren Project will host its eighth annual auction and benefit dinner from 5:30-8 p.m. Sept. 16 at Pelican Lakes Clubhouse, 1600 Pelican Lakes Point in Windsor.
The Lauren Project provides carbon monoxide safety and education, as well as grants for young adults to do international volunteer service projects.
The auction and dinner will include the announcement of a new innovation in carbon monoxide detection devices, according to a news release from Don Johnson, president of the project.
Representatives from OtterBox, SPARROW and KWJ Engineering will be on hand to share the technology, according to the release.
The group was established after the 2009 death of Lauren Moilien Johnson from carbon monoxide poisoning, according to the release.
The organization has distributed almost 4,000 carbon monoxide alarms for free, canvassing thousands of homes in northern Colorado, and is a national advocate for carbon monoxide safety.
