Patrick Lippert

Patrick Lippert, 35, president of the music industry’s Rock the Vote organization and longtime entertainment industry organizer for political and charitable causes, died July 13 in Marina Del Rey of AIDS.

While serving as director of Network, an organization that provided political education for people in the entertainment community, he organized countless events including Oscar-night benefits.

He was a driving force in launching the Hollywood Policy Center in 1989.

Lippert became part of Rock the Vote in 1991, serving as executive director and later president. His efforts were recognized last month when he received the Founders Award from the Liberty Hill Foundation.

A memorial service will be held at 6 p.m. July 14 at Will Rogers State Park at 14253 Sunset Blvd. in Pacific Palisades. In lieu of flowers, Lippert had asked that donations be made to Rock the Vote, 10635 Santa Monica Blvd., L.A. 90025.MDSDMDSDMDSDMDSD
