Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital
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.
