Jerry Lewis Tapped for Lifetime Achievement Award by Publicists

Award to be presented Feb. 28

Jerry Lewis has been selected to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from Hollywood’s union publicists.

Lewis will be presented the trophy at the Publicists Awards Luncheon at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel on Feb. 28.

Steven Poster, president of the Intl. Cinematographers Guild, said Lewis is “a national treasure who has provided generations worldwide with decades of laughs. The money he has raised for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and Jerry’s Kids is simply astounding. Jerry is also one of the main reasons I wanted to get into show business when I was a child.”

Lewis starred in “Max Rose,” which premiered at Cannes last year. He completed his run in 2011 as national chairman of the Muscular Dystrophy Association and received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the 2009 Academy Awards.

Past recipients of this award include last year’s honoree Kirk Douglas as well as Carol Burnett, Sylvester Stallone, Robert Zemeckis, Harrison Ford, Julie Andrew, Clint Eastwood, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Warren Beatty.
