We are thrilled to report that just this morning, we sent payment to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for the fee for Brian's star, and never have we been so glad to say 'The check is in the mail'!
We could never have reached this day without each and every one of you, so we thank you for the support and dedication you've shown.
Keep watching this site, and we will keep you updated with details on the installation ceremony. We'd love to see as many of you there as possible, and if you'd have to travel to make the event, contact us; we've found some reasonably priced hotel rooms in the heart of Hollywood, and we'll be there with bells on!
And certainly, after the ceremony, we'll post some pictures. Those of you who can't make it will feel like you were there, and those who were there can relive the moment.
Thank you again for everything.

We are pleased to announce that Brian Keith has been selected as one of the 2008 honorees for the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
(See the official announcement HERE.)
The star is scheduled to be installed on June 26, 2008, at 11:30 am PDT, with the exact location on the Walk to be determined at a later time.
Since 1960, when Joanne Woodward was awarded the first star, this famed sidewalk has conjured images of the greats of the performing arts. Fans of different generations have reveled in strolling along Hollywood Boulevard to find their personal favorites. It's the perfect opportunity to take a moment to remember the joy that various performers bring into our lives every day.
But while there have been over two thousand well-deserving stars awarded in the years since its inception, we believe that there is a glaring omission from the Walk.
Brian Keith, the highly popular, highly respected actor of stage, film, and television, has yet to be recognized for his enduring contributions to the art. As long-time fans of this talented performer, we have banded together to try and correct this oversight.
Operating as the Society To Advance Recognition for Brian Keith, we have applied to the Walk of Fame committee for Mr. Keith to be considered as one of this year's honorees. However, in addition to the nomination and selection process, anyone who will be honored on the Walk must also pay a fee to the trust that maintains the historic area. This is a $25,000 cost, but we are determined that the financial hurdle will not keep us from achieving our goal, which is why we are turning to you, our fellow fans.
On this site, you will be able to find out about our fundraising efforts, browse biographies and filmographies, and read comments from other fans who want to share their thoughts about what Mr. Keith has meant to them through the years. And, of course, if you are so inclined, you will be able to make a donation to the cause. But either way, we are glad you dropped by today. We invite you to join other fans in signing our guest book, and we hope that you will enjoy the time you spend here, remembering a true acting great.
