Funking Conservatory Press Release - Dory Funk And Princess Diana In Ocala Star Banner Feature Story

Courtesy of Dory Funk Jr.:

From the Ocala Star Banner:
Dory Funk Jr. is more comfortable busting heads in a wrestling ring than sizing up designer gowns in a museum.

"Dresses? I don't know much about dresses," says the wrestling legend who lives in Ocala. When asked his favorite color gown, Funk cracked, "pink."

"Look," Funk added. "I weigh over 230 pounds and I like to wrestle. The kind of dress that would appeal to me would be a big one. Something that would cover me - like a robe.

Funk, like many men in Marion County, Florida, is about to see some of the world's most famous gowns, up close and personal. This Sunday, the "Diana Princess of Wales: Dress for a Cause" exhibit opens, and runs through December 30 at the Appleton Museum of Art. It features designer gowns worn by Princess Di and also her personal mementoes.

The Diana Exhibit is for a cause we all should support, breast cancer.
The complete story and photos of Princess Diana is on our website.
