Jeff Towns Memorial Award

In 2010, we added an award for the member who comes to the aid of anyone in need, at any time: The Jeff Towns Memorial Award.  This is for the person who drops what they are doing to help out another person in our vast artcar community of friends.  From fixing a flat tire, to rebuilding all or part of anything under the hood of your car, to someone who holds your hand in bad times.

This award celebrates the helping hand.  While the Brian Bryan Memorial Award recognizes the person who "walks the walk and talks the talk of a Houston artcar artist all year", this award specifically targets that person who is the most helpful in the Houston artcar community. 

Jeff Towns was that kind of person.

This award does not celebrate the way Jeff Towns died, it celebrates the way the man lived.  If you knew Jeff Towns, you miss Jeff Towns.  (Click here to read more about Jeff Towns on this website)
Ben Gibson made the trophy for this award.  There is a small glass container inside that houses some of Jeff Towns' ashes. 

When you shake the award, you can hear Jeff inside.
