Young became involved in supporting CSGW after hearing a presentation about the program. Realizing that the program needs to fundraise in order to pay tipsters for information that leads to arrests, he decided to support the program through roadside sign awareness, and fundraisers such as the annual Bucket Sale. This has allowed CSGW to increase their awareness in Wellington North and raise much needed funds.

The award is presented annually to an individual, business, or community group that demonstrates outstanding support of the CSGW program.
