2015 Peter Soumalias Unsung Hero Honour

2015 Peter Soumalias Unsung Hero Honour Recipient Evelyn Wilson

Peter Soumalias is the Founding Director of Canada's Walk of Fame who launched the organization in 1998 along with co-founders Bill Ballard, Dusty Cohl and Gary Slaight. To pay tribute to his dedication and outstanding contributions to the recognition and celebration of Canadian excellence across this country, Canada’s Walk of Fame announced the creation of an honour in his name, to annually recognize a very special Canadian whose outstanding work within the arts, culture or sports impacts their community and inspires the next generation.

After a successful national outreach campaign, Canada's Walk of Fame is pleased to announce that Evelyn Wilson of Carrying Place, Ontario is the recipient of this Honour. A devoted mother and wife, Evelyn is also a caregiver to her community. Her husband Brent describes her as someone who has “always had a passion to make a difference and who selflessly donates so much of her time to help those in our community.” 

Evelyn will be attending the 2015 Canada’s Walk of Fame Celebration Events, including the star-studded Red Carpet and Broadcast Show on Saturday, November 7 at Toronto’s Sony Centre for the Performing Arts, along with the Inductee Charity Ball presented by Scotia Wealth Management later that evening, where she will be recognized. In addition, she will receive a $5,000 honorarium and a commemorative gift.
