Animation veteran Mark Evanier to celebrate his beloved actress’ life


Animation veteran and long-time friend of the late June Foray, Mark Evanier has announced the details of the beloved actress’s life celebration that will be held on September 19 at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Going by Evanier’s popular blog, “there will be cartoons, there will be speeches and there will be rare clips of June speaking and performing.”

If one is interested to attend, he/she should send an email to “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,” Evanier notes.

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 will be thrown open at 6:30 pm before the show starts at 7:30 pm. “Dress for the occasion is business casual… No antlers or squirrel tails, please,” Evanier adds.
