IN MEMORIAM: Frank "Slivers" Oakley

The world lost Francis "Slivers" Oakley 100 years ago today. The fundraising effort held here on clownalley.net this past weekend raised over $3,500. to provide both Slivers and Nellie with a tombstone. We've been asked to leave the GoFundMe site active so that others can continue to contribute with any funds left over after the instillation earmarked for an International Clown Hall of Fame fund for future projects of a similar nature.

The Oakley family wishes to extend their most heartfelt gratitude for the generosity of the international clown community in coming together to honor Slivers and Nellie's memory.
