(October 17, 2007) - Come bask in the glow of your star. After 75 years of exemplary work by Screen Actor Guild members, you've earned it!
On Thursday, October 25, 2007 at 11 a.m., the Hollywood Historic Trust will present an Award of Excellence star to Screen Actors Guild—making it the first guild ever to receive this honor.
The ceremony will serve as the official kick-off event for the Guild’s year-long 75th Anniversary celebration. The star will be unveiled at 7018 Hollywood Boulevard, in front of the historic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
The Award of Excellence star recognizes Screen Actors Guild’s extraordinary place in Hollywood history and the entertainment industry. SAG is the first labor union to receive a star and only the fifth organization ever to receive a star.
The SAG Foundation is honoring the Screen Actors Guild's 75th Anniversary by supporting the Award of Excellence star. The SAG Foundation is accepting donations to raise funds for the Foundation and its programs as well as for the installations and maintenance of the star. Contributions in excess of the amound expended to cover teh cost of the star will be used to fund other SAG Foundation programs, including those that assist performers in need. SAG dues are not being used to fund the star.
