A celebration of life service for Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna is set to take place at 10 a.m. on February 24, almost a month after the helicopter crash that killed the pair and seven others, Vanessa Bryant confirmed Friday.

The date was a conscious choice, as two was Gianna's jersey number, 24 was Kobe's and 20 is the amount of years he was a Laker.

Vanessa Bryant just announced that Kobe and Gigi Bryant public memorial has been set for Monday, Feb. 24 at Staples Center with organizers expecting a massive turnout as reported by TMZ.

Bryant and Gianna are survived by his wife Vanessa, and daughters Natalia, Bianka and Capri.

The Los Angeles Lakers - the club where Bryant starred for 20 seasons - Staples Center, and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti's office did not immediately confirm the event was planned.
