TYLER PERRY TO RECEIVE FIFTH ANNUAL PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD FOR FAVORITE HUMANITARIAN AT "PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARDS 2017"

Joel McHale to Host Live Broadcast, Wednesday, Jan. 18 on CBS

CBS and The People's Choice Awards announced today that Tyler Perry will receive the fifth annual People's Choice Award for Favorite Humanitarian, presented by Enterprise Rent-A-Car, during the PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARDS 2017, live from the Microsoft Theater L.A. Live, Wednesday, Jan. 18 (9:00-11:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network. Hosted by Joel McHale (THE GREAT INDOORS), The People's Choice Awards are the only major awards show where fans determine the nominees and winners across categories of movies, music, television and digital.

Perry was chosen as this year's honoree in recognition of his efforts to change lives all over the world for the better. With the help of the Tyler Perry Foundation, he has donated millions of dollars to organizations such as Feeding America, the NAACP and Charity Water, among others, all in effort to eradicate homelessness, support civil rights causes and aid survivors of devastating natural disasters such as the earthquake in Haiti and Hurricane Katrina. In support of Perry's tireless efforts to help those in need, Enterprise is donating $100,000 to Perry's charity of choice, the Global Medical Relief Fund for Children.

"We are honored to present Tyler Perry with this year's People's Choice Award for Favorite Humanitarian, and we thank our partners at Enterprise for their generous donation to the Global Medical Relief Fund on his behalf," said the president of the People's Choice Awards, Fred Nelson. "Mr. Perry's decades-long commitment to helping those in need is incomparable, and the GMRF is an amazing organization, dedicated to aiding children in desperate need of care. I'm proud that our show provides a platform for this well-deserved recognition."

The Global Medical Relief Fund for Children (GMRF) was originally created in 1997 by one person working out of a small apartment on Staten Island, N.Y. Since then the GMRF, along with partners-in-aid including the Shriners Hospitals for Children, has worked non-stop for 19 years helping children in America and 40 other countries worldwide. The GMRF provides the children, many of them amputees and burn victims who have no local medical resources, with vital medical care and ongoing treatment to ensure they return home and become thriving members of their own cities, towns and communities. Tyler Perry first became aware of GMRF when it was featured on 60 MINUTES in 2011.

Enterprise, and its comprehensive transportation offerings, is presenting the People's Choice Award for Favorite Humanitarian in honor of the brand's commitment to picking up the communities where its customers and employees live and work.

Past winners of the award include Sandra Bullock in 2013, recognizing her work with the Warren Easton High School in New Orleans; Jennifer Hudson in 2014 to honor her work with the Julian D. King Gift Foundation; Ben Affleck in 2015 to recognize his work with the Eastern Congo Initiative; and Ellen DeGeneres in 2016 to support St. Jude's Children's Hospital.

Previously announced attendees at PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARDS 2017 will include Kristen Bell, Ellen DeGeneres, Robert Downey Jr., Tom Hanks, Boris Kodjoe, Matt LeBlanc, Jennifer Lopez, Bill Paxton, Tyler Perry, Adam Rodriguez, John Stamos, Wilmer Valderrama and Kerry Washington. Additional attendees and performers will be announced at a later date.

Voting for PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARDS 2017 has closed for most categories, but will remain open for Favorite New TV Comedy, Favorite New TV Drama and Favorite Year End Blockbuster until show night on www.PeoplesChoice.com.

Tickets to the awards show are currently available for fans to purchase through www.AXS.com.

About Global Medical Relief Fund

The mission of GMRF is to help hopeless, resourceless, often maimed children who are victims of war, natural disasters or other catastrophic injuries or illnesses, by proving care, compassion, transportation and a caring home environment while getting them access to free, on-going medical treatments and physical therapies. GMRF and its partners bring each child who has suffered severe injury to U.S. facilities for treatment and care that helps restore their bodies, their spirits and their self-esteem. We bring these growing children back for follow-up medical treatments and therapy until they reach age 21. Our care for these children is totally personal. We have never treated a child whose name and family history we didn't know. We provide them with transportation, a home and day to day care, and coordinate their on-going medical treatments, surgeries and therapies to help them rebuild their lives and get "on track" to heal and return home to eventually become productive members of their own communities. Elissa Montani is the Founder and Director of The Global Medical Relief Fund for Children and the official website can be found at www.gmrfchildren.org.
