Gurrie Middle School in La Grange is hosting a fundraiser Thursday, March 6, to benefit the Kelli O’Laughlin Memorial Fund during a girls volleyball game against visitors from Park Junior High School in LaGrange Park.

Raffle tickets and T-shirts will be sold during a “pack the place purple” event from 4 to 6 p.m. at the school, 1001 S. Spring Ave. Raffle tickets are $10 to win an assortment of gift cards. T-shirts sell for $12 and bracelets cost $3.

All proceeds will be donated to the fund for scholarships in memory of Kelli O’Laughlin, a Lyons Township High School freshman killed in 2011 by an intruder in her Indian Head Park home. Purple was Kelli’s favorite color.
