Thunder superstar Kevin Durant is among four set to be honored next month at the Dialogue Institute’s Annual Friendship Dinner and Awards Ceremony.

The institute publicly recognizes those who have “generously contributed their time, energy, expertise or financial resources” to the community.

Durant will receive the Philanthropy Award for his charity work following the devastating tornado that struck Moore last May. Durant donated $1 million to victims of the tragedy and took the time to visit the devastated area and meet with displaced victims.

Wanda Pratt and Tony Durant, KD’s mother and brother, will present him with the award. The event is on April 1st in Oklahoma City. Here is a look at all the honorees:

-Kevin Durant, NBA All-Star, Philanthropy Award
-Janienne Bella, CEO Red Cross Central Oklahoma, Community Award
-Kerry Pettingill, 25th Chief of OK Highway Patrol, Service Award
-Dr. Imad Enchassi, Professor, Oklahoma City University
