Nichol Whiteman and Dodgers Awarded the Sports Humanitarian Team of the Year
On June 21st, ESPN announced that the Los Angeles Dodgers were named the Sports Humanitarian Team of the Year in recognition of the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF). LADF was recognized for tackling the most pressing problems facing Los Angeles with a mission to improve education, health care, homelessness, and social justice for all Angelenos. LADF was awarded $100,000, which it will use to continue to run and fund proven programs that help level the playing field and invest in on the ground solutions.
The annual Sports Humanitarian Awards is a recognition of the impact made by athletes, teams and sports industry professionals who are using sports to make a difference in their communities and throughout the world.
“LADF was built for this moment in time. The trauma of a pandemic and social justice events has exacerbated the significant disparities in our communities. We know that inequality can only be dismantled through proactive and strategic interventions, and we are starting with the root causes,” said Nichol Whiteman, Chief Executive Officer, Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation. “This award is a celebration of our organization’s accomplishments, but we are far from done. LADF will not waver. We will be part of the solution.”
Covington Capital Management is a proud supporter of the LADF. Foundation CEO, Nichol Whiteman, serves on Covington’s Advisory Board. Covington Managing Director, Susan Wolf, serves on the LADF Board of Directors.
Congratulations Nichol to you and the Dodgers team for this coveted award and your exemplary work in the community! We applaud you!
