In this episode of All the Best, we celebrate the inaugural presentation of The George H.W. Bush Points of Light Awards, which took place in September of 2019 in New York City. Neil Bush, who chairs the Points of Light Board of Directors, speaks on the importance of the organization and continuing the legacy of his father. Gala co-chair Lauren Bush Lauren shares a few special moments from this year's event. You will also hear from two of the very first George H. W. Bush Points of Light Award recipients, Khloe Thompson and Maria Rose Belding. Khloe was just eight years old when she started Khloe Kares to address the issue homelessness in Los Angeles. Maria Rose Belding, meanwhile, created the MEANS Database as a freshman at American University — and has since helped reroute nearly 2.8 million pounds of excess food to communities in need across the United States.
