Los Angeles, will honor Tom Arnold with the "Humanitarian Award;" Oscar De La Hoya with the "Man of the Year" award; and Kelly Meyer with the "Woman of the Year" award at their 25 th annual Awards Luncheon, Saturday, October 25 at The Beverly Hilton Hotel, Beverly Hills. Sydney Holland and Sumner Redstone serve as Honorary Co-Chairs; Peggy Albrecht and Michael Hollingsworth, Co-Chair. Celebrity fashion stylist and television personality Brad Goreski will emcee.

The "Humanitarian of the Year" award is being presented to writer, producer and actor Tom Arnold. Although he's known as a funny man, he's successfully broken out of the comedic stereotype by landing more mature and dramatic roles featured at film festivals. Going back to his roots, Arnold has established a writing scholarship and runs an acting workshop for students at the Indian Hills Community College in Iowa in addition to supporting a number of other charities.
Peggy Albrecht Friendly House's "Man of the Year" honoree is Oscar De La Hoya, Olympic gold medalist and 10time world boxing champion. Since retiring from the ring in 2009, De La Hoya has focused his attention on building his company, GOLDEN BOY Promotions, into the most successful boxing promotion company in the world.

Kelly Chapman Meyer, environmental activist and health advocate, will be honored with the "Woman of the Year" award. Meyer is a trustee of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and co-founder of the American Heart Association Teaching Gardens.
