J-Law receives the Down Syndrome of Louisville Friendship Award

Eonline Jennifer Lawrence honored with Down syndrome awardI wrote in a previous post about the friendship Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence has with all-around-good-guy Andy Strunk, who happens to have Down syndrome. In honor of that friendship, E! News is reporting that J-Law will receive the Friendship Award from Down Syndrome of Louisville at this year’s Mint Jubilee, a gala held as part of the Kentucky Derby festivities. Due to her filming schedule, Ms. Lawrence’s brother will be accepting the award presented by Mr. Strunk. The gala is next Friday, April 26, 2013, at the Louisville campus for Down Syndrome of Louisville.

As I wrote in the previous post, little did I know that my daughter would have the chance to meet an Oscar winner. With this news, little did I know that my local support organization would be featured by the major entertainment news channel’s website providing national coverage of what is certain to be an incredible evening at the Mint Jubilee. Tickets are available and can be purchased through Down Syndrome of Louisville.

Disclosure: I serve as Board President for Down Syndrome of Louisville. The views on this blog are solely mine and should not be attributed to the organization.
