Fundraiser Details

For all who donated to Lauren’s Memorial Fund, we thank you so much for your kindness and generosity. Your touching messages have been a tremendous comfort for my family during these times. The memorial fund was started on our behalf as an act of kindness by the Hoang family, who also lost a life in Ken Hoang. In an incredible act of selflessness, the Hoang family also redirected further donations from Ken’s Memorial to Lauren’s cause. For this gesture, my family cannot express enough gratitude to the Hoang family. 

Those who have met Lauren knew her to be a selfless and loving soul. We are certain that if she were still with us, she would want the fund to be used not for herself but towards helping others. It is therefore my family’s wish to use all of the contributions generated by Lauren’s Memorial Fund towards a charity/scholarship in her name, to carry out her dream of serving those in need. For those who still wish to donate to Lauren’s charity, we will be keeping her online memorial open. We will also have donation boxes made available at the funeral home. Donations can be made out to the Lauren Li Foundation.
