The ceremony included the presentation of several awards, such as the Presidential Volunteer Service award, Humanitarian Awards from the UNA USA, and prestigious award presentations from the Royal Society of Saint George.


These individuals have demonstrated dedication to serving others and have achieved extraordinary success, making them exemplary role models for the community. During her address, Princess Karen Cantrell emphasized the importance of giving back to the community and encouraged everyone to participate in volunteering and charitable efforts. She highlighted the transformative power of small acts of kindness and the profound impact that collective efforts can have in creating a more compassionate and inclusive society.

The event honored those who have dedicated their time and resources to making the world a better place, celebrating generosity, compassion, and selflessness. It was a pivotal event that contributed to the formation of the AWL.

The Royal Society of St. George California, along with its esteemed guests and awardees, serves as a beacon of hope and inspiration for others to follow in their footsteps and make a meaningful difference in the lives of those in need. As we reflect on the remarkable accomplishments of Burt Ward, Sir Laurent Khait, Donelle Dadigan, and others honored at the event, let us be reminded of the power of service, kindness, and generosity in shaping a brighter future for generations to come. May their exemplary actions inspire us to reach out and lend a helping hand to those in need, for it is through unity and compassion that we can truly make a difference in the world.
