Update: Celebration Planned To Remember Life of Mr. Boise Pride 2011

 The Lucky Dog Tavern in Boise will be holding a special celebration to remember the life of 24-year-old Cory Wood aka CW Blaque, this Wednesday night, March 28th.

The event is also a fundraiser to help Wood’s family with funeral expenses.

Wood, who was killed last week in a traffic accident near Camptonville, California, was well-known throughout Boise’s LGBT community.

He took on the title of Mr. Boise Pride 2011 last June.

If you would like to make a contribution, or if you can bring an hors d’oeuvre to Wednesday’s event, you can contact  Selena Blaque on facebook or by calling 208-515-1214.

According to a facebook announcement, the celebration is scheduled to start at 8:00 pm. The Lucky Dog Tavern is located at 2223 W Fairview Avenue in Boise.

There will be a viewing this Saturday, March 31st, from 6-8 pm. Funeral services will be held on Sunday, April 1st,  from 3-5 pm. Both events will be held at Zeyer Funeral Chapel, 83 N Midland Blvd in Nampa.

In addition, Stone Mountain Music DJ Andrew Laughlin is putting together a DVD for the funeral and is asking  the community to email him any photos of Wood they might have. You can email them to laughlinandrewjm@gmail.com.
