One of Canada’s richest men along with two of its funniest were honoured Friday afternoon during a Canada’s Walk of Fame presentation at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
Businessman Jimmy Pattison and Hollywood comedy hitmakers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg were officially inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame in Toronto in December, but on Friday, the three Vancouverites were guests of honour at a special hometown star unveiling, presented by Cineplex.
The event, held in Vancouver Convention Centre West’s Ocean Foyer (level 2), was open to the public and included special guests like Howie Mandel.
The three walk of famers had a busy Friday. Pattison attended Friday morning’s business launch for the St. Paul’s Hospital replacement project, to which he has donated $75 million, while Rogen and Goldberg hosted a Just For Laughs Northwest event Friday night at the Vogue Theatre.
