The Sweetwater Clifton ‘City Spirit’ Award pays tribute to local heroes who have made a significant difference in the lives of others. 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. Recipients of this award epitomize the same trailblazing characteristics of the Knicks Legend.

We’re proud to partner with Clorox to celebrate and recognize community heroes throughout the season. Recipients will each receive a $5,000 donation to a charity of their choice.
