IGFA George G. Matthews Distinguished Service Award

In conjunction with the evening’s festivities, the IGFA will proudly introduce and announce the Inaugural IGFA George G. Matthews Distinguished Service Award created by Bodo Muche Studios. In the nearly 80-year history of the IGFA, George G. Mathews has stood out for his unparalleled and distinguished service to the organization. For nearly 50 years, Matthews has devoted his time, leadership, and generosity to the IGFA. No other individual has served the organization as long, and few have given as much. We are honored to celebrate George G. Mathews during our marquee event, and we anticipate a full house.
