Vince Carter’s Embassy of Hope Foundation awarded Hyatt and Cici Brown and Nancy Lohman its Embassy of Hope Foundation Hall of Fame Award on Saturday, August 15, 2015 at the Vince Carter Charity Gala, presented by Brown & Brown and Halifax Health. “The Browns and Nancy Lohman exemplify my foundation’s mission of helping those less fortunate and giving of themselves for the betterment of our community,” said Carter, a former NBA All-Star and member of the Memphis Grizzlies.
