The Tom Bane Award was presented to Gaines by Dr. Marlene Bane, Tom Bane's widow, and former California Assembly Speaker Robert Hertzberg. Dr. Bane noted, "Fred Gaines is the perfect recipient of the award, both as someone who knew Tom and someone who has positively impacted so many people through his philanthropic efforts." In accepting the prestigious award, Gaines stated, "I am tremendously honored to receive the Tom Bane Humanitarian Award. It is humbling to be the recipient of an award that is named for such a great legislator."

The Jack Schlaifer Visionary Award is presented annually to an Executives member who has contributed significantly to the growth of the Young Executives, the young leadership arm of the organization. Jonathan Hartman has been a longtime supporter and leader of the Young Executives.

The Jack Schlaifer Visionary Award was presented by Executives Past President Jack Schlaifer, who explained that Hartman has contributed greatly to the growth of the Young Executives as well as The Executives as a whole. Hartman remarked, "It is extremely important and gratifying for me to work on behalf of an organization such as the Jewish Home that takes care of the elderly with tremendous dignity."

The Executives, founded in 1992, is comprised of the San Fernando and Conejo Valley's most prominent business and community leaders. Their mission is to raise funds to enhance the quality of life and care of the residents of the Jewish Home. The Executives host a number of monthly and annual events that provide support to the Home while offering the reward of friendships and associations through philanthropic endeavors. The Young Executives provides leadership training and social activities for members in their 20s and 30s. Through volunteering at the Jewish Home and sponsoring social events, they help to provide for the Home's residents' immediate needs.
