The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce promotes Hollywood as a world‐famous destination. We have recently marked the 60th Anniversary of Hollywood Walk of Fame with a year‐long celebration and have so far honored more than 2,500 celebrities with stars. Accepting a star is a coveted honor and a tribute to all of those who worked so hard to develop the concept and to maintain this world‐class tourist attraction. By accepting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame or speaking at a star ceremony, you are requested to sign this Authorization which allows the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to use your name and likeness in connection with your public appearance at the Walk of Fame Ceremony to help promote this world‐famous icon in our marketing efforts beyond normal news reporting.
