Richie Sambora To Be Honored By Charity
Grammy award-winning musician Richie Sambora will be honored at the 12th Annual Golden Heart Awards on May 7 – along with Del and Bettina Breckenfeld – for his philanthropic work with The Midnight Mission, a human services agency offering emergency services, drug and alcohol recovery and transitional programs for homeless men, women and children in Los Angeles.
The Golden Heart Awards will take place at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel and will begin with a 6:00 pm reception, followed by dinner, the awards and entertainment.
“I have a profound respect for the Midnight Mission,” says Bon Jovi guitarist Sambora. “I’m inspired by the work they do day in and day out. I’m proud to be affiliated with such a solution-minded outreach program. For the betterment of our community, I gladly contribute whenever I’m able to lend my support to the cause in any way I can. To have the Midnight Mission recognize me with this award is humbling and an incredible honor.”
Celebrity presenters include Dick Van Dyke and Debi Mazar, with actor and environmentalist Ed Begley Jr. who will serve as Master of Ceremonies.
“The Midnight Mission is thrilled to be honoring Richie and Del and Bettina with our prestigious Golden Heart Award,” said Larry Adamson, President and CEO of The Midnight Mission. “These individuals have generously supported us in serving those less fortunate and without a home with empathy and respect. We thank them for their allegiance and whole-hearted dedication to improving the lives of others.”
