Aceshowbiz:At the benefit dinner, 38-year-old Josh was presented with Red Cross Spirit Award. He recently teamed up with the Red Cross to raise $150,000 for the Japanese earthquake/tsunami relief at the Youth Run 4 Japan fundraiser. He has also worked with the organization after a devastating earthquake hit Haiti in 2010. Before receiving his honor, the former “Las Vegas” star joked to reporters, “I think it might be because my wife spent so much money at the auction last year that they invited us back. They needed an excuse so they gave me an award!” His wife, in the meantime, told The Insider on the red carpet she is proud of him for his charity works and finds it “really attractive that [my] husband thinks of these things.” Another star being honored on the special night was veteran actress Betty White. Presented with the American Crystal Cross Humanitarian Award, the “Hot in Cleveland” star said in her speech, “When I talk about going back to when I was a kid, at 89 that was centuries ago, but growing up the one solid positive – my earliest memories were that when anything went wrong the Red Cross was always there!” (Josh Duhamel Honored at Red Cross Red Tie Affair, Fergie Sizzles).
