Carnegie Medal Of Philanthropy Celebrates 20th Anniversary

Dolly Parton was jokingly uncharitable after the crowd at the Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy ceremony tried singing along with her during her acceptance speech at Gotham Hall, the AP reports.

The Grammy-winning country superstar said after a muted sing-along of "Books, Books" to support her Imagination Library initiative that "that was terrible."

That philanthropic program, which provides children under five a free book every month, was one of the reasons she was part of this year's class of Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy honorees, as well as her donation to coronavirus vaccine research in 2020 that helped develop the Moderna vaccine.

"I'm very proud and honored to be a part of anything that is going to make the world a better place," Parton said, adding that she was pleased to be celebrated along with Dallas entrepreneur Lyda Hill, Kenyan industrialist Manu Chandaria, and Lynn and Stacy Schusterman, from the Oklahoma investment family.

The ceremony Thursday night celebrated the 20th anniversary of the award, which was established in 2001 as the "Nobel Prize of philanthropy."

To mark the milestone, which was postponed a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Carnegie institutions launched the Carnegie Catalyst award to "celebrate the transformative power of human kindness."

The award went to World Central Kitchen. Read the Entire Article
