A second Four Stars for Lauren fundraiser has been organized for Thursday, June 17, from 6 to 9 p.m. in the event space at Boulevard Brewery, 2501 Southwest Boulevard. The brewery and more than 20 local restaurants and eight wine, beer and beverage vendors have donated food and services to the event.

Funds raised will be donated to the BrenMaren College Fund for Chapin's daughters and the newly established Lauren Chapin Memoral Scholarship Fund at Johnson County Community College's culinary program. A donation will also be made in Chapin's name to the Midwest Transplant Network; Lauren was a multiple organ donor at her death.
