According to Los Angeles Sentinel, the award is presented to an individual who has made significant contributions in their industry and impacted the community by improving the quality of life for youth and families through education, advocacy, and community building.
One of the many ways Mookie earned this award was by creating his non-profit organization, Acts Inspired by Mookie (AIM), which Mookie and his mother, Diana Collins, founded. AIM’s purpose is to provide for the community those impacted explicitly by food insecurity.
President and CEO of Brotherhood Crusade Charisse Bremond Weaver explained why Mookie deserves this award.
“We are thrilled to present this award to Mookie Betts because he epitomizes our organization’s values and believes in taking action to improve the quality of life for those in the community,”
“Mookie Betts is remarkable on and off the field and aligns himself with organizations like ours that understand the need to uplift others and the power of grassroots action that changes lives.”
The Brotherhood Crusade’s Award show returned today after a two-year hiatus and was hosted at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Congratulations to Mookie Betts on this incredible achievement.
