Tim Hetherington Memorial Service in New York To Be Held May 24

Friends of photographer Tim Hetherington, who was killed in Misrata, Libya on April 20, have organized a memorial service to be held in New York City, where the UK-born Hetherington had lived for several years.

The memorial service will take place May 24 at 4pm at the First Presbyterian Church, located at Fifth Avenue between 11th and 12th Streets in New York City.  (The church’s address is 12 W. 12th Street. Directions can be found on the church’s web site.)

A funeral was held May 13 in London, which was attended by Hetherington’s family and several hundred friends and colleagues.

The photographer’s family has also designated three organizations important to Hetherington where donations can be made in his memory:

Milton Margai School for the Blind,
Sierra Leone

Human Rights Watch

Committee to Protect Journalists
