BCANDS “Wall of Fame”

“Before a man can wake up and find himself famous,
he first has to wake up and find himself”

To help inspire the BCANDS staff our clients and communities to achieve the most that we can, as well as adding a bit of fun to the BCANDS office, the idea of a “Wall of Fame” was developed by the BCANDS team members. The idea behind the “Wall of Fame” is to contact a variety of noted persons and request an autographed photo with best wishes from them to the BCANDS clients and staff.

To date we have had a good response and have received over 50 autographed photos from various actors, actresses, politicians and others.

If you have a request for an individual that you would like to see on the “Wall of Fame” or if you have someone you know that you are deserving to be on the wall, please contact our office and provide a brief outline of the person to be considered, including their name, and why you feel they should be included on the wall.

Below are just some of the photo’s we have received, click on the pictures to expand and on the links to learn more about these “Wall of Fame” contributors.
