Less than a month after Tony Hsieh’s death, a memorial fund was set up to honor his memory and his impact on downtown Las Vegas.
Online shoe sellers Zappos, Hsieh’s subsidiary DTP Companies and the City of Las Vegas
The city is partnering with DTP, the late Tony Hsieh’s $ 350 million investment to revitalize downtown Las Vegas, and Zappos, an online shoe retailer that Hsieh ran for 21 years, to create a Tony Memorial website on the Zappos website. The site will be “a central place to gather heartfelt suggestions from the public to celebrate Tony’s life and legacy,” according to a press release Thursday.
This page also provides information on how charitable donations can be made to the Tony Hsieh Memorial Fund through the Moonridge Foundation.
“Tony Hsieh meant so much to so many in the city of Las Vegas,” Mayor Carolyn Goodman said in the press release. “His vision, generosity and spirit have forever changed our city for the better, and we have shared the joy of seeing dreams come true through Tony. The city of Las Vegas is honored to work with the Hsieh Family, DTP Companies and Zappos to celebrate and remember our friend. “
Hsieh died on November 27 at the age of 46 from complications from smoke inhalation after being injured in a Connecticut house fire.
