Mark Evanier, animation veteran and longtime friend of the late June Foray, has announced the details for the beloved actress’s life celebration, which will be held on Sept. 19 at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (located at 8949 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills, CA). According to Evanier’s popular blog, “there will be cartoons. There will be speeches. There will be rare clips of June speaking and performing.”
If you would like to attend, you should send an email to [email protected]. Evanier notes, “Tell us if you will be one or two people. If you have some special connection to June, feel free to mention it but we’re letting in folks who never met the lady and just loved her work. (Two per e-mail is the limit. If you have five people who want to be there, tell two of them to send in their own damned e-mails.)”
However, sending an e-mail does not ensure a seat as there will be more requests than seats. A confirmed R.S.V.P. might not guarantee admission, as the event is likely to sell out fast. Doors open at 6:30 PM. The show starts at 7:30. Complimentary parking is available after 6 PM in the buildings at 8920 Wilshire Blvd. and 9025 Wilshire Blvd. Evanier adds, “Dress for the occasion is business casual… No antlers or squirrel tails, please.”
