Hollywood Wax Museum Sponsors Hollywood's 125th Birthday Celebration
Hollywood Wax Museum helps give Hollywood a birthday it will not forget!
HOLLYWOOD, CA - February 1, 2012 - Stars, fans, politicians, and visitors alike came out to the Hollywood and Highland Center to honor the milestone birthday of one of the biggest icons in the world. Hollywood is now 125 years young! The event was beautifully decorated with memorabilia and photos from the yesteryears, exposing the rich history of the place we’ve all come to love.
Among the platinum level sponsors was our very own Hollywood Wax Museum, the longest running wax museum in the nation, and attraction in Hollywood. Open for business in 1965, the Hollywood Wax Museum has always been dedicated to the development of the city, as well as the preservation of landmarks that have become quintessentially, Hollywood. The Hollywood Wax Museum is a dedicated member of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which helped protect the land around the infamous Hollywood sign from development, and created the 125th Celebration Event.
The guest speakers included Councilman Eric Garcetti, of the 13th District of Los Angeles. Eric shared that during a visit to Korea, the president himself requested the commemorative Hollywood Sign lapel pin, showcasing the magic of Hollywood throughout the world! Duff Goldman, celebrity chief from “Ace of Cakes,” provided a charming cake and added, to those living outside of Los Angeles, “Hollywood is much more than a place, it’s an idea.” Jimmy Kimmel helped blow out the candles, thanking Hollywood for making all his childhood dreams come true. Tom LaBonge, 4th District Councilman of Los Angeles, shared “The Wizard of Oz,” as his favorite movie, and just as Dorothy, Tom believes “there is n place like home.”
Here at the Hollywood Wax Museum we are proud to call Hollywood our home, and look forward to the next 125 years! The marvel of Hollywood attracts 20 million visitors per year, embraces creativity, and celebrates the arts like no place on earth. So cheers to you Hollywood! And even though you are over a century old, you are still ready for your close up!
