Jennifer Lawrence rarely goes a month without being nominated (and subsequently winning) some sort of award, the latest of which was winning a handful of gongs over the weekend at the MTV Movie Awards. But now it’s emerged the Oscar winner has picked up another nod but this time for her charity work.
The Derby Chronicle report Jennifer Lawrence will receive a special tribute at an event for the Down Syndrome of Louisville Lifelong Learning Center in the actress’ hometown of Louisville.
The Hunger Games star previously volunteered for the organization and she still remains close to former school friend Andy Stuck who has Down Syndrome. It’s widely reported that she regularly visits her friend whenever she goes home and gives him signed movie posters.
The charity will pay tribute to Jennifer Lawrence at the Mint Jubilee Gala on 26 April that is set to be an evening of dinner and dancing with proceeds going to the charity, Down Syndrome of Louisville.
Unfortunately Jennifer Lawrence won’t be able to attend but her brother, Blaine, will accept the award on her behalf.
Talented, beautiful and charitable – is there anything Jennifer Lawrence isn’t good at?
