This August 26th - September 1st, we celebrate the life of burlesque legend Dixie Evans with dozens of world-wide tribute shows, classes and special events
With the passing of Dixie Evans on August 3rd, 2013, Dixie Evans Week will now become a celebration to honor the memory and celebrate the life of one of our most cherished legends, Dixie Evans. All funds raised during Dixie Evans Week through online funding, live shows and classes will be used to cover the costs of outstanding medical bills and preparations for Dixie's final accommodation. With your support, we hope to provide a memorial service for friends, families and fans on Sunday, September 1st in Las Vegas, Nevada, as well as to ultimately provide Dixie a resting place and permanent memorial in Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery, where many stars have been buried including Marilyn Monroe. This location will serve as a place where friends, family, and fans can go to pay their respects to Dixie forever.
In order to accomplish this goal, we now need to raise a total of $42,000 - $54,000. As we all know, loved ones passing brings a large degree of uncertainty, and the expected breakdown of Dixie's final expenses is no exception. We will update these approximate numbers when we have more details, but we wanted to provide the public with a general idea of how funds raised for Dixie Evans Week will be distributed.
- Outstanding Medical Bills $5,000 - $7,000
- Probate $4,000 - $7,000
- Memorial Service $8,000 - $10,000
- Final resting place and monument at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery $25,000 - $30,000
- Total: $42,000 - $54,000
Funds raised beyond Dixie's immediate medical, memorial, and final resting place accommodation costs will be relocated to another fund per the family's recommendation.
This is a black tie event and canapes will be served for the 3 hours of the session.
