Dinner Friday night will benefit Laurel Williams Foundation

Tickets are still available for scholarship fundraiser that honors Foothill High accident victim

The Laurel Alice Williams (LAW) Foundation will be launched Friday night at a dinner honoring a Foothill High School alumna who died in a car accident in October 2007.

The scholarship foundation will help a student transferring to a four-year university from Las Positas College in Livermore and who aspires to be a positive influence on society. The foundation will also promote the expansion of Safe Rides, a service created for teens by teens, which provides free and confidential rides for teens on the weekend.

The dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Crow Canyon Country Club, 711 Silver Lake Drive in Danville. Tickets are $75 and include dinner. There will also be an auction.
