TAMPA, Fla.—The Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open announced today that celebrity host Justin Timberlake will be honored at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards on April 2. Timberlake will receive the Big Help Award, which recognizes individuals who take actions to better the world and whose significant impact on their community has inspired kids to do the same.


Timberlake has turned his love of golf and his passion for helping into an annual PGA TOUR event in Las Vegas that raises funds and awareness for Shriners Hospitals for Children. The Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open features a series of events, including a celebrity pro-am and the Justin Timberlake and Friends Concert. In previous years, the concert has featured Elton John, Christina Aguilera, Taylor Swift and Alicia Keys, among others.


“I was inspired at a young age by my parents and family to do everything possible to give back to the world around us,” said Timberlake. “And it has become a mission of mine to help kids of all ages understand the importance of getting involved in their communities and local charities and doing their part to preserve the planet.”


In addition to the annual Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, Timberlake has participated in several public-service announcements for Shriners Hospitals for Children, a health-care system of 22 hospitals dedicated to improving the lives of children by providing pediatric specialty care, research and teaching programs for medical professionals. All care and services are provided regardless of the patients’ ability to pay.


The 24th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards will air on on Nickelodeon at 8 p.m. EDT. The Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open will take place from Sept. 25 to Oct. 2.
