Garth Brooks To Receive Inaugural Points Of Light Award

22/08/2019

PEARL RECORDS' GARTH BROOKS will be the recipient of the inaugural GEORGE H.W. BUSH Points Of Light Award For Caring And Compassion at THE GEORGE H.W. BUSH POINTS OF LIGHT AWARDS GALA. The event will take place on THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26th at the INTREPID SEA, AIR & SPACE MUSEUM in NEW YORK. The award was created by the global organization POINTS OF LIGHT to honor individuals who advance solutions to the world's toughest challenges and exemplify the traits of the organization's late founder, the 41st U.S. President GEORGE H.W. BUSH.

"GARTH is one of our generation’s true singer and songwriter legends – but what many people aren’t aware of, is GARTH's commitment and passion for creating viable change in communities across AMERICA,” POINTS OF LIGHT Chairman NEIL BUSH said. “My father [GEORGE H.W. BUSH] always admired the way GARTH used his visibility to support and lift up those in need. And much like my father, GARTH is a true humanitarian whose generosity comes from his empathetic compassion for others.”

“The fact that this award is a reflection of [BUSH], his beloved [wife] BARBARA, and the work they believed in is the greatest honor,” BROOKS said. “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.”
