THE LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

MONTY HALL

Honored: 1995
Location: Beverly Hills, California

Canadian-born American television personality Monty Hall has used his celebrity to call attention to and raise millions of dollars for Jewish and secular causes. Hall was a moving force in the original and continuing development of the Israel Tennis Centres. Since 1972, the annual Monty Hall Diabetes Tennis Tournament has benefited the Diabetes Center at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. And, from 1985 to 1995, the annual Monty Hall Golf Classic benefited youngsters participating in the World Maccabiah Games in Israel. There is scarcely a major Jewish organization that has not honored Hall with its highest award. In addition to his countless contributions to the Jewish community, Hall has also aided charitable and nonprofit activities throughout the world, primarily through Variety Clubs.

The Lifetime Achievement Award is presented annually, honoring those individuals who have made significant contributions to the State of Israel and society through sports.
