Report: Jenni Rivera Memorial Set for Tuesday

LONG BEACH, Calif. (KTLA) — A public memorial will be held on Tuesday for Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera in her hometown of Long Beach, TMZ reports.

Meantime, hundreds of fans attended a charity event on Sunday to honor the international superstar, who gave back generously to the Long Beach community.

The nonprofit Families in Focus, which helps women and children who have faced abuse, has held a Spirit of Christmas Brunch for needy families for nine straight years.

Rivera had supported the event the past two years. This year, she donated about 90 sets of pajamas and 75 pairs of slippers.

The Families in Focus board of directors had selected Rivera to receive an award shortly after her last donation, which was made several weeks before her death.

In addition to the public memorial on Tuesday, Rivera’s family will gather for a private service on Wednesday, according to TMZ.

The website reports that celebrities invited to the service include Snoop Dogg, who is  also a native of Long Beach, and Gloria Estefan and Edward James Olmos.

Rivera, along with six others, was killed in a plane crash on Dec. 9 in Mexico. She was 43 years old.
