Jennifer Lawrence - Jennifer Lawrence Honoured By Down Syndrome Organisation

Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence is to be feted by a charity over her friendship with a young man with Down syndrome.

Lawrence, who hails from Louisville, Kentucky, has been selected to receive the Down Syndrome of Louisville's Friendship Award for her close relationship with childhood pal and neighbour Andy Strunk.

A spokesperson for the organisation tells Eonline.com, "Jennifer and Andy Strunk (a member of Down Syndrome of Louisville) have been friends and neighbours since their middle school days. Jennifer and Andy enjoy a loyal friendship of mutual encouragement and enjoy each other's company and humour. They text and speak on the phone quite frequently. Their families stay in close contact and continue a friendship too.

"Our members and staff of Down Syndrome of Louisville are so very proud of Jennifer for staying true to her Louisville hometown roots while she achieves global recognition for her craft as an artist. We are thrilled that Andy will present the Friendship Award to her family."

Lawrence's brother Blaine and his fiancee will accept the award on the actress' behalf at the Mint Jubilee Gala in Louisville on 26 April (13). The Hunger Games star is unable to attend the gala due to filming commitments in Hawaii.
