A memorial for billionaire financier Warren Hellman is being held Wednesday at Congregation Emanu-El.

Hellman, who was known for his philanthropy and for starting the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival, died Sunday at the age of 77.

There is also a larger memorial planned for Hellman in Golden Gate Park in the coming weeks, though a date has not yet been set.
