Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Society Scene - Broward - - Front Page -

Earvin “Magic” John­son was re­cently hon­ored with the Joe DiMag­gio 2015 Amer­i­can Icon Award.

The Joe DiMag­gio Amer­i­can Icon Award is pre­sented an­nu­ally to an in­di­vid­ual who rep­re­sents the high­est val­ues for which Joe DiMag­gio stood. Pres­i­dent Bill Clin­ton re­ceived the first Amer­i­can Icon Award in 2014. The event is a fundraiser to ben­e­fit Joe DiMag­gio Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal.

John­son demon­strated his skill as a fundraiser, host­ing sev­eral im­promptu auc­tions, which cap­ti­vated at­ten­dees and col­lec­tively raised $250,000.
