Mr. and Mrs. Neil Bush and the Ambassador of Italy and Mrs. Bisogniero hosted this year’s Point of Lights Tribute Awards at the Embassy of Italy on Oct. 11 recognizing individuals and organizations whose contributions have bettered their communities. In honoring New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Neil Bush said “Governor Christie showed that when the chips are down, we are all family.” The Governor said that he accepted the award on behalf of the volunteers, “those people who helped rebuild my state.” American Idol star Pia Toscano sang “I’ll Stand by You” and legendary broadcaster Paul Berry auctioned off an American flag flown on 9/11, signed by and donated from the personal collection of Pres. George H. W. Bush, for a breathtaking $57,500.
