Spotlight: Broadcasters Foundation of America

The Broadcasters Foundation of America is a non-profit organization created to help radio and television broadcasters in times of need. Whether it be a case of critical illness, death of a spouse or serious misfortune, for over 65 years the foundation has identified those in need and provided an anonymous financial safety net. Broadcasters helping broadcasters or those that have made the broadcasting industry what it is today.

For this year’s annual Golden Mike Award Dinner, the foundation wanted to add a new award to the mix, a Lifetime Achievement Award. With Dick Clark selected as the first-ever honoree, the foundation came to Society Awards for a crystal statue to present to the iconic broadcaster and entertainer. They were immediately drawn to the Paris Crystal 2 Diamond from our Exclusives Line, an exquisite piece inspired by antique perfume bottles.

The new award was unveiled at the 2015 Golden Mike Award Dinner held on March 19th at the Plaza Hotel in NYC. The foundation provided us a wonderful recap post event:

“The gala was spectacular and great cachet was brought to the proceedings by the Lifetime Achievement award being presented to Kari Clark, Dick’s wife of 44 years. It was a moving tribute and there was a room full of smiling faces when we announced that, hence forth, the award would be known as the Dick Clark Lifetime Achievement award! Thanks for helping bring it together with your first class workmanship.”
