Marilyn Monroe Memorial Fund

Please help keep the legend of Marilyn Monroe alive by contributing to the Marilyn Monroe Memorial Fund. The Marilyn Remembered Fan Club, the entity arranging the memorial service since 1982, is offering fans around the world the opportunity to become personally involved in the memorial service by becoming a sponsor of the 2010 event. Please note that 100% of donations will be used to fund memorial service and reception expenses. The Marilyn Remembered fan club is charged a facility usage fee of $500 to hold the service in the chapel at Westwood Memorial Park, the same chapel where Marilyn’s actual funeral services were held. Other expenses include memorial service program printing costs, flowers for the service and Marilyn’s crypt, chairs for additional seating if needed, refreshments for the reception following the memorial service, etc.

Everyone donating to the Marilyn Monroe Memorial Fund will be acknowledged in the memorial service program.

Fans attending the service have never been charged an entrance fee in the 25 year history of the Marilyn Remembered Fan Club. Please consider helping the club offset the costs of holding the service, renting the facility, and providing programs, etc. Your personal sponsorship will help keep the legend of Marilyn Monroe Alive.

Thank you!

Marilyn’s Bench Replaced at Westwood

I wanted to forward this message from The Marilyn Remembered Fan Club:

For many years a bench was positioned near Marilyn Monroe’s crypt at Westwood Memorial Park.  This bench, provided by the Marilyn Remembered Fan Club and the All About Marilyn Fan Club in 1992, allowed for a place near Marilyn where visitors could spend time contemplating her life, thinking about Marilyn, or just visiting her.

In February of 2009 a beautiful new bench of pearl white granite was installed.  This bench will be formally dedicated at the 2009 Marilyn Monroe Memorial.  This bench was paid for solely with donations and contributions from fans all over the world.

The Marilyn Remembered Fan Club recognizes and thanks the following fans who donated to this cause, and ultimately to our goal of keeping the legend of Marilyn Monroe Alive.
