LIVE: Watch the Warren Hellman memorial

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.

The organizers of the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival set up the live stream of the memorial for those who could not attend the memorial service.

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.
