Garth Brooks is going to receive the first George H.W. Bush Points of Light Award.
It's awarded to an individual who advances solutions to the world’s toughest challenges. Garth will receive the award in New York City on September 26th from former Presidents George W. Bush, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama who all serve as Honorary Chairs of the Award. Needless to say Garth is incredibly honoured. “The fact that this award is a reflection of [George H. W. Bush] 41, his beloved Barbara [Bush], and the work they believed in is the greatest honour.” An award is only as good as its recipient. My hope and goal is to make the Bush family and the honorary chairs proud that Garth Brooks is the first name on this award for caring and compassion.”
