Statement by Lisa Blue Baron, President of The Larry Hagman Foundation about Larry Hagman Day

Statement by Lisa Blue Baron, President of The Larry Hagman Foundation 
about Larry Hagman Day

The Larry Hagman Foundation supports “Dallas” cast members in recognizing March 11th as Larry Hagman Day to pay tribute to one of the greatest actors of our time. As the iconic character JR Ewing, Larry Hagman made Dallas famous around the world, but not everyone knows that in addition to being a great actor, Larry was also a great philanthropist. I will always remember Larry for his optimism, kindness, and generosity.

Today especially, let us all honor Larry by recognizing the foundation that he created just last fall for underprivileged children in the local Dallas community. Larry founded The Larry Hagman Foundation to promote the educational benefits of theater, visual arts, dance and music and to fund organizations providing these instructional programs for low-income children.

Thanks to the ongoing support of Larry’s friends, cast members, and generous donors, The Larry Hagman Foundation continues to inspire children today, right here in Dallas, to fulfill their dreams. 

Today is a special day to remember Larry, but his legacy will live on every day in our hearts. As Larry would say, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy, Feel Good!”
