Many years ago, Alabama's Randy Owen rallied the world of country music to get involved with St. Jude's fundraising and aware raising efforts. Consequently it's fitting that he has an award named in his honor. This year The Randy Owen Angels Among Us Award was given to John Rich for his significant contribution to the hospital. Mr. Rich was the winner on the NBC Celebrity Apprentice Show. During the program he raised 1.4 million dollars. That amount was then given to St. Jude.
WIN 98-5's Kim Brixton was in Memphis when the award was presented.
