LOS ANGELES — Several friends and associates of performer Bill Bailey, who passed away after an accident in Mexico City earlier this month, have organized a memorial celebration and fundraiser to help his Tennessee family and partner AJ Applegate with funeral expenses.
The memorial, defined by the organizers "a celebration of Bill's life" will be held on March 19th at Corbin Bowl in Tarzana.
Kendra Lust, Nina Elle and agent Randy Quintana, in conjunction with Mark Spiegler, are inviting everyone to join them. The celebration will take place at Corbin Bowl — located at 19616 Ventura Boulevard, Tarzana, CA, 91356 — and will run from 7-10 p.m. The recommended donation of $50 will go directly to Applegate and also to Bailey's family to help cover expenses in their time of need.
"Bill touched the lives of everyone he met," said the organizers. "It is times like this that the industry can come together to remember a life gone too soon."
Quintana added, "Differences aside, this is for a good cause to help the family of one of our own with the costs related to this tragic accident. Everybody is welcome, please find in your heart to donate what you can."
For those who are unable to attend, or who would like to give an additional donation can do so via the official GoFundMe campaign. All money from the GoFundMe will go directly to Bailey's loved ones.
