We didn’t know they could actually do this…

2 things:

a) with the recent rash of celebrity addictions and deaths, does Absolut make the best sponsor?

b) does anyone else want a shot? I feel like a shot… anywho…

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has taken a new approach to raising funds to restore the Walk. They have created the Friends of the Walk of Fame initiative to restore the Walk of Fame before its 50th anniversary in two years and they’ve hooked their first big sponsor, Absolut Vodka.

Sponsors won’t get an official star but according to the press release “sizable donations from corporate supporters will be acknowledged with a Friend of the Walk of Fame honorary star” which is described as a “new terrazzo piece that will be placed in the sidewalk, on private property, adjacent to the Walk of Fame.” The Chamber presented Absolut with the first honorary star which will be located near the entrance to the Kodak Theatre, part of Hollywood & Highland Center on Hollywood Boulevard.

Absolut is also launching a new flavor, Absolut LA, a mix of “blueberry, acai berry, acerola cherry, and fruity notes of pomegranate” which will be available this month.
