Laura Marano to Receive Cameron Boyce Pioneering Spirit Award – The Hollywood Reporter

Actress and performer Laura Marano has been selected to receive the Cameron Boys Pioneering Spirit Award at the 13th Annual Thirst Gala and 2nd Annual Legacy Ball on October 15.

The event marks the second year in a row that Thirst Project and Legacy Youth Leadership organizations have teamed up to host the fundraiser, after last year’s online event raised a collective $300,000.

The award, created to honor the late Cameron Boyce, “recognizes celebrities and/or influencers who best use their platform to raise awareness and/or funds to end the global water crisis,” according to the organization. It’s a reason Marano knows all too well. She began working with the Thirst Project in 2017, presenting the Power of Youth Award alongside Shane Harper at the 8th Annual Thirst Gala. A year later, Marano hosted a red carpet livestream with Zach Song in 2019 before presenting the Volunteer Trophy opposite Wyatt Oleff.

He is credited with leading campaigns such as Thirsty 30 in 2019, which held more than 100 different fundraisers and raised more than $20,000 for water projects that provide clean water for life to more than 500 people.

Boyce’s parents, Libby and Victor Boyce, and Missy Pyle, among others, will appear at this year’s event, sponsored by Paramount Pictures, United Talent Agency and Nickelodeon. Brand ZOX will be honored with the Vision Award for its “significant support in ending the global water crisis and building the next generation of young leaders”.

Seth Maxwell, founder and CEO of Thirst Project, contributed: “We’re excited to build on the momentum of last year’s inaugural program as our team here at Thirst Project and Legacy Youth Leadership begin an exciting new chapter, and we can’t wait to celebrate the incredible. Young people are influencing some of the world’s most important issues.
