NBA legend Magic Johnson is known for his showtime skills on the basketball court and for the smile and personality that makes him one of the most popular analysts and broadcasters in entertainment today. However, he is more than just a basketball guru and highly successful businessman, he is also a humanitarian.
On Saturday, October 11 Johnson was amongst some of the most popular names in sports and entertainment when he was presented the Brass Ring Award at the 2014 Carousel of Hope Ball in Beverly Hills. The Brass Ring Award was earned by Johnson through his humanitarian work over the years both as a player and in his more recent days as a businessman and owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The gala was attended by more than 1,000 guests with tickets priced from $1,000 to tables ranging up to $100,000. The night included dinner, speakers, awards, and entertainment from some of the most well known talent in the industry, including Jennifer Hudson. All funds raised by the event went to benefit the Children’s Diabetes Foundation and Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes.
