LOS ANGELES (TEGNA) — The Los Angeles Lakers will hold a memorial service for Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna, almost a month since they died in a helicopter crash along with seven other people in Southern California.

The memorial service, scheduled for Feb. 24 at 10 a.m., will be held at Staples Center and is open to the public.

The Lakers say tickets for the event will be distributed through Ticketmaster. Those interested in attending can register to purchase tickets here. Registration closes Monday, Feb. 17 at 10 p.m. PST.

People who have been selected and verified will be notified Tuesday evening and receive a unique access code to purchase tickets. Those with a code will then be able to participate in public ticket sales starting Wednesday morning.

Tickets will be sold for $224 each, two for $224 and $24.02 each.

The prices and date of the event pay tribute to the jersey numbers worn by Bryant and Gianna. All proceeds from the tickets will be donated to the newly named Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation.

Speakers and performers are expected at the event, but have not yet been announced.
