The outlet reports that the honor “recognizes and thanks entertainers who spread laughter and awareness through acts of kindness, charity and revelatory honesty that makes people feel heard, seen and less alone, and through many ways, make the world a brighter, more open and caring place.”

Sharing the news on Instagram, Close wrote: “THRILLED to be celebrating EUGENE & DAN LEVY with the ROBIN WILLIAMS LEGACY OF LAUGHTER Award and CHASE STOKES with our BC2M CHAMPION OF CHANGE Award.”

“So many of us are experiencing stress, anxiety and depression. Let’s decide to TALK to LISTEN and to LAUGH!!”

Congratulations, Dan and Eugene Levy!
