Tom Petty and his wife Dana will be honored on May 9th for their charitable work to benefit the homeless.


The honor will be in the form of the Golden Heart Award, presented by the L.A. organization Midnight Mission.

Midnight Mission assists in drug and alcohol rehabilitation, as well as transitional programs for homeless men, women, and children in the Los Angeles area.

The Pettys have been supporters of the cause for several years, and Tom Petty even did a benefit concert to help out the organization in 2008.

It's always great to see prominent musicians giving back to charities that mean something to them personally. You can see more on the story at the Midnight Mission website. Go to
