Musician and children's entertainer Fred Penner has been honoured for his career and humanitarian work.

Penner was honoured by the DASCH Foundation -- which supports adults living with intellectual disabilities in group homes -- at the organization's 12th annual recognition awards luncheon Thursday.

"We can all make a difference in this world," Penner said in his acceptance speech.

"Never underestimate your ability to make a difference in the life of a child."

Guests included Lt.-Gov. Philip Lee, Mayor Sam Katz and Family Services Minister Kerri Irvin-Ross.

"I can't think of a better combination with this organization committed to improving the lives of children and adults," said Lee.

Katz said Penner is "truly a great human being who does so much for his community."

DASCH has 55 group homes with 300 residents and 700 staff.
