Mourners at Lisa Melancon’s memorial service this evening will have the chance to support her family and come away with a remembrance of her.
Northwest Embroidery has donated 72 caps that will be available at the Tacoma Dome.
“We hope to raise $2,000.00 for the family,” said Jim Mickelson, the company’s CEO.
He is suggesting a $20 donation for each hat, and knows from experience that many of Melancon’s admirers will be happy to give more. The company’s donated hats raised $30,000 for the families of the four Lakewood police officers murdered in November.
The company, he said, will make more hats as the demand warrants.
