12-13 Sweetwater Clifton Award Recipients

For the 7th year, the New York Knickerbockers will sponsor the Sweetwater Clifton City Spirit Award, which honors local heroes who have made a significant difference in the lives of others. Winners will be recognized at center court of Madison Square Garden on a monthly basis throughout the 2012-2013 Knicks season. The New York Knicks will make a $2,000 donation to the recipient’s charity of choice. The award is named in honor of the late Knicks great, Nat “Sweetwater” Clifton, who was the first African-American to play for the Knickerbockers.
