The organization's "Founder's Award" is its highest honor and is given to individuals who have contributed significantly both in time and resources to the advancement of its mission.

    "Glen has been an integral part of OUR HOUSE for more than 20 years. His compassion and dedication to helping those in our community affected by grief - especially children - was why he was selected as our inaugural board chair and why he is being honored with this award," said Michele Prince, executive director of OUR HOUSE.

The work that OUR HOUSE is doing is truly changing lives, and I am proud to be a part of it," said Kraemer.

    Kraemer will be honored with the "Founder's Award" at the organization's 20th Anniversary House of Hope Gala on November 16 at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles. The sold-out event will also honor TV host and actress Melissa Rivers whose father died tragically when she was 18.
