For the past 3 years I've hosted the Dearly Departed Weekend in October. It's a two-day event that takes place in unusual places around Los Angeles. We have a cocktail party, tours, celebrity guest speakers and a raffle. The ultimate goal of the Dearly Departed Weekend is to raise funds to pay for a headstone for an otherwise forgotten notable individual. It's hard work for the team behind these Weekends, but this makes it worth it. This year's recipient was actress Thelma Pelish.
On December 14, 2014 we had a short dedication and unveiling.
