Autograph Fundraiser

Now is your chance to be a part of Hal Roach/Laurel and Hardy history – and even better, to own a piece of that very same history in your own collection!

Many of the stars we know and love from the Hal Roach Studios do not have grave markers, leaving it very difficult to fans of their work to visit and pay tribute to them. We have been working toward rectifiying this wherever possible, and our work has already seen some great results. Thanks to these effots, you can now visit the final resting places of Viola Richard, Harry Bernard, and Sam Lufkin, all of whom did not have a marker up until the last couple of years.

As part of a fundraising effort to add future markers to these deserving individuals (Bobby Dunn and Mickey Daniels are currently in the works), we are offering a limited quantity of hand-signed photos of many of the stars who knew and worked with Laurel and Hardy and the Our Gang Comedies.

Each of these items is guaranteed to be personally autographed by the celebrity, each of whom agreed to sign as part of future fundraisers. Excess proceeds from these purchases will go toward offsetting the costs of Hollywood ’14.

Purchases can be made with check or money order payable to:

Bob Satterfield — 255 East 28th Street — San Bernardino, CA  92404

Inquiries or requests to hold an item can be emailed to Shipping on orders over $75 is included in the price of the purchase. Orders less than $75, please add $5 for shipping. Check back often as items will be continually added.
