A memorial service has been organized for Amanda Todd, the Port Coquitlam teen who committed suicide in October after posting a video about bullying and harassment that received international attention.

The event is being called a Celebration of Life and Happy Birthday, and has been organized for Sunday, Nov. 18 at the Red Robinson Theatre in Coquitlam. Guests are asked to bring an unwrapped toy for donation to Share Family and Community Services, which conducts a toy drive each year for struggling families and distributes Christmas hampers through its three food banks.

To attend the service for Todd, registration is required at www.xoxoent.com/amandarsvp/ and seating is limited.

Doors open at 12:30 p.m. and the services will run from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.

A service had been considered for Nov. 17 at a PoCo school but was rescheduled to Nov. 18 at the Red Robinson Theatre, which is at the Boulevard Casino, 2080 United Blvd., Coquitlam.
