MUSIC UNITES SELECTED FOR PHYLLIS HYMAN PHAT FRIEND AWARD
Posted: October 3, 2010
Named in honor of the late singer/songwriter who served as the All Stars celebrity spokesperson, All Stars youth leaders created the Phat Friend Award to have a civic voice in the life of New York City so they could tell us which adults and programs are making a meaningful difference in their communities.
Year round, young people across the city nominate community leaders, business executives, media representatives, educators, politicians and celebrities who they think are supporting the development of young people and their communities. The nominees are interviewed by the Phat Friend Youth selection committee, which selects the awardees. The youth selection committee bestows the Phat Friend Award at the annual award ceremony.
