Toronto Denies Involvement In Paying For Corey Haim's Funeral

Filed under: CanadialandR.I.P.Sad Sad



They moved fast on this one!!

After reporting this morning that Toronto was covering the costs of Corey Haim's funeral, we received this statement from the city officials:

Media reports concerning funeral costs for Mr. Haim continue to reference the City of Toronto.

As a result of these ongoing reports, the City of Toronto wishes to ensure the facts are properly available.

The City of Toronto has never received an application for assistance with the funeral costs for Mr. Haim.

While the City would normally not confirm or deny the existence of an application for assistance with funeral benefits as this is a matter covered by Privacy regulations; given the number of reports the City has chosen to confirm the facts in this matter.

Media seeking to confirm the original reports of the City's involvement in the costs of Mr. Haim's funeral continue to be asked to speak with the originating source for the report.

While the City of Toronto is not involved in Mr. Haim's funeral, the City of Toronto, like most municipalities, assists deceased Toronto residents that do not have adequate resources within their estate to pay for a basic funeral and burial. An evaluation of the Estate is conducted before any assistance is provided. The program is administered by the City's Toronto Employment and Social Services Division and details about this program are available at: www.toronto.ca/socialservices/funeral.htm

There you have it!!

We hope Startifacts.com sticks to their promise if Toronto has no involvement in helping pay the costs!!

Corey Haim's Hometown Of Toronto Covers His Funeral Costs!

Filed under: CanadialandR.I.P.Sad Sad



We reported earlier that the celebrity memorabilia site, Startificats.com, had offered to pay for late actor Corey Haim's funeral when it was announced his family could not afford to, but it appears now that the actor's home town, Toronto, will instead be covering the costs!!

So touching!

Startifacts, however, will still be donating the $20,000 to help pay for extra expenses, including the actor's tombstone.

A rep for the site says:

“We gave that money out of the goodness of our heart, but we do work with so many celebrities and we always try to help them out, especially when they’re hard on cash."

They also plan on holding a benefit auction with Haim's belongings in the near future.

We think it's lovely that so many have come forward to help out a family clearly in need!

We're sure Corey's mother is so grateful!

Corey Haim's Funeral Is Covered

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad


Corey Haim's family started an online fund on Friday to help pay for Haim's funeral and the cost of transporting his body back to Toronto, but a company has already offered to pony up the $$!


Memorabilia company Startifacts has offered to cover the entire cost of the funeral, headstone and transport, all from the profits earned by Corey Haim memorabilia the company is currently auctioning off!

It's the right thing to do!

Reps from Startifacts have said they will deliver a $20,000 check made out to Haim's mother on the day of the funeral instead of making the family wait until the auctions are completed.
