About the Celebration

The George H.W. Bush Points of Light Awards Celebration, held on Sept. 26, 2020, honored extraordinary individuals who demonstrate the traits of our 41st president – integrity, empathy, respect, optimism, conviction in the face of opposition and belief in the power of the human spirit. We celebrated and recognized people who are leading during these unprecedented times. This year, we transitioned this traditional awards gala to a livestream experience, bringing hope and inspiration to audiences everywhere.
