CLINT BLACK RECEIVES KUDOS FOR CHARITY WORK

On June 23, 2001, Clint Black received the Celebrity of the Year Award from ALSAC/St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The star was honored because of all the support he has given to this organization throughout the years. The ceremony was held in Memphis, but Black could not attend so he sent Maria Brunner, a member of his management team and board member of St. Jude, in his stead. Brunner read a statement by Black during the ceremony.

In the statement, the benevolent artist credited Maria for "a great deal of the credit that I may have earned for my efforts on behalf of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital." He also thanked other organization members and closed by saying: "Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this wonderful acknowledgement. It's easy to join in a cause that has so much love behind it, and so much hope ahead of it."
