01 - 31 - 2012 Paterno family to sell DVDs of JoePa’s memorial for charity
(CDT) The family of the late Joe Paterno said theyâll be selling copies of the coachâs memorial service & donating the proceeds to charity. A statement yesterday from son Scott Paterno said numerous media outlets have expressed an interest in selling copies of the emotional public memorial service that drew about 12,000 people to a campus arena last week. The family said theyâll soon launch a website where copies can be purchased on DVD. The family said any money generated by the sales would go to charity. Joe Paterno died Jan. 22 from lung cancer, a little more than 2 months after he was fired from PSU in the wake of a child sex abuse scandal involving a former assistant coach. Paterno was never charged in the scandal.
