Golden Girl in the Spotlight

Betty White with a GDB puppy
Betty White, Golden Girl and longtime friend of GDB, will be the recipient of the Life Achievement Award at this year’s Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards. Betty is Chair of the Norah Hamilton Straus Donor Circle for GDB’s major donors and has been a major donor herself for decades. In addition, she is a tireless advocate for animal rights.

The show will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS on Saturday, January 23 at 8:00 pm (7:00 central). The websites for both channels are listed below for additional information.


  1. Betty was a team sponsor for one of my classmates, and was at our graduation! The dog was named Betts, after her, and she took pictures with the team just as the puppy raisers were doing. If you were to ask me, I think, that sets the bar pretty high when you get a puppy named after you!!! O.K. here is my finishing joke for today, has Gardner's namesake started saving up yet???

  2. I absolutely love Betty White. She definitely deserves this award.
