Humanitarian Award to Orlando Hudson
In a June 8 ceremony on the Public Square, Darlington native and Major League Baseball veteran Orlando Hudson was recognized for his longstanding charitable work with autistic youths.
Members of the Ninth Masonic District honored Hudson with the Humanitarian Award for works of the C.A.T.C.H. Foundation (Curing Autism Through Change and Hope), a non-profit Hudson founded in 2008 to provide therapy, education, and activities for autistic children.
“I’ve known Orlando all his life… I’ve watched him transform into a very humble, exceptional young man who has given of his time, resources, and God-given abilities,” said Kevin Brown, speaking on behalf of the Ninth District Masons.
“I have family members who are Masons, and it’s definitely an honor to receive this award from you guys,” said Hudson. “I really appreciate it.”
