8. The Friars are Philanthropic

Exterior of the Friars Club

Beyond the roasts and award ceremonies they produce, the Friars also take part in charity work. The club has many philanthropic endeavors such as The Lincoln Awards which honors extraordinary individuals and companies committed to serving and supporting U.S. veterans and military families, The Sunshine Committee which provides entertainment and companionship to senior citizens and disadvantaged children, and the Adopt-A-Scholar program which grants four-year scholarships to students endeavoring to pursue careers in the performing arts.

The club regularly hosts benefits that support a variety of philanthropic causes. If you want to support the Friars Foundation, the club’s foundation for “the betterment of society through the arts,” you can make a donation on The Friars Club website.
