Funds raised by the event will support the Foundation's initiative to teach 10,000 at-risk youth and veterans in the LA area the Transcendental Meditation technique, which scientific research has shown to alleviate the devastating effects of traumatic stress.
'Ringo Starr has been promoting peace and love for over 40 years—he is known for peace and love. If you are going to give an award for peace and love, the starr of the list is Ringo.''
Also to be celebrated that evening is the birthday of filmmaker David Lynch.
The 20 January award celebration is one of two such upcoming events to be presented by the David Lynch Foundation. The second, at the end of February, will honour legendary music producer Rick Rubin with the foundation's 'Lifetime of Harmony' award. Global Good News will report more about Mr Rubin's event.
