The David Lynch Foundation celebrated the successes of the past year recently at 'An Historic Night of Jazz'—its fourth annual Change Begins Within benefit gala—held at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City. The evening featured world-class jazz performances and inspiring stories of transformation from first responders, survivors of domestic violence, and children on the autistic spectrum, as a result of their practice of Transcendental Meditation.

With the help of its generous supporters, the Foundation was able to bring Transcendental Meditation to tens of thousands of at-risk adults and youth all over the world.

During the evening, the Foundation honored Dr. Mehmet and Lisa Oz with the DLF's ''Perfect Health Award'' and Ray and Barbara Dalio with the DLF's ''Unbounded Generosity Award'' for their unmatched lifetime achievements in the fields of health, finance, and philanthropy—and for their generous support of the David Lynch Foundation's work with adults and children in great need.

Sixteen-year-old Joey Lowenstein, who has autism spectral disorder, received the David Lynch Foundation's ''Resolute Courage Award'' for triumphing over overwhelming personal setbacks and starting the Joey Lowenstein Foundation to aid children with autism, including providing them with Transcendental Meditation instruction.

Donations from the benefit gala helped the Foundation begin to deploy a team of young professional instructors who will bring Transcendental Meditation to thousands of inner-city students, veterans, and women and girls in the New York City Tri-State area during 2013.
