Garth Brooks to Receive Inaugural “George H.W. Bush Award” for Philanthropy

Garth Brooks will soon add another award to his crowded trophy case, the inaugural George H.W. Bush Points of Light Award for Caring and Compassion.

Points of Light, a global nonprofit dedicated to accelerating people-powered change, created the award to honor outstanding individuals who advance solutions to the world’s toughest challenges and exemplify the extraordinary traits of its late founder and the 41st President of the United States, George H.W. Bush.

Garth will be recognized at The George H.W. Bush Points of Light Awards Gala on Sept. 26 at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City. Former Presidents George W. Bush, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama will serve as Honorary Chairs of the Awards Gala.

“The fact that this award is a reflection of 41, his beloved Barbara, and the work they believed in is the greatest honor,” said Garth. “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.”

Since Garth co-founded Teammates For Kids with Bo Mitchell in 1999, more than 4,700 professional athletes from baseball, football, basketball, hockey, soccer, rodeo and racing have helped raised more than $100 million to aid children in over 60 countries around the globe. In addition, Garth and wife Trisha Yearwood have volunteered with Habitat for Humanity for more than a decade.
