When Levees.org was young and small – struggling for traction in a world often hostile to our message – one man stood with us.
Super star John Goodman put his name and reputation on the line to support Levees.org’s mission.
To thank him and everyone who stood with Levees.org in those dark early days, we rolled out the John Goodman Award in 2016. The first honoree was Mr. John Goodman who gave his time pro bono for the people in his home town that he loved.
And each year, Levees.org will give the John Goodman Award on June 20th (Mr. Goodman’s birthday) to honor someone who has significantly helped the cause.
The 2017 award goes to Ms. Elizabeth Reed.
