Lutz was honored for his work on behalf of Saving Innocence, an organization dedicated to combating sex trafficking and helping its victims.
White's honor was the result of his support of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, where he designed a game room for long-term patients at the Target House facility and starred in commercials that raise money and awareness.
