Sarah Hyland: 2012 Variety’s Power of Youth Honoree

A few months ago, Sarah Hyland shared some shocking-yet-inspiring news that she underwent a kidney transplant this year. Sarah is using her experience to inspire those going through the same issues with her work with the George Lopez Foundation.

Over the weekend, Sarah was one of the many honored for her charity work at Variety’s Power of Youth presented by Cartoon Network. The event – which took place at Paramount Studios – was attended by 750 invite-only guests made up of the “who’s who” of under-25 entertainers, as well as the children and families directly affected by the honorees’ benefitting charities.

Sarah was presented her award by George Lopez and it was revealed that Sarah will be visiting some of the camps next summer to share her experience with the kids.

We want to send big congrats to Sarah on this amazing award.
