May 19, 2014 – Pass On Blessings Awards graphic

The Foundation will celebrated the 82nd birthday of Ambassador Andrew Young with its 2nd Pass on Blessings Awards ceremony at the Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia. The Pass on Blessings Award was created to affirm the giving spirit and actions of accomplished people who have used the bounty of their blessing to make a difference in the lives of others.

The 2014 ceremony recognized the life and work of American legends that helped build Atlanta’s skyline and image as a world-class metropolis, and changed America from a divided to a united nation. Their contributions and acts of courage in government, business, philanthropy, sports, entertainment, and human and civil rights were instrumental in breaking down racial barriers, and racial and economic injustice in America; altering the course of our nation; and creating a legacy that continues to make an impact on Atlanta and the world.

The Pass on Blessings honorees were:

  • President Lyndon Baines Johnson and Lady Bird Johnson (posthumously), Luci Baines Johnson (daughter, accepting)
  • Henry “Hank” Aaron and Billye Suber Aaron
  • John C. Portman, Jr. and Jan Portman
  • Herman J. Russell, Sr. and Sylvia E. Russell
