I was thrilled to be an honoree at the National Sons of Italy Convention. There were over 400 people in attendance at the luncheon in Orlando. Previous winners include sports personalities and heroes, Joe Garagiola, Yogi Berra, and Rick Pitino. I am honored to be among this elite group of people. It was especially meaningful after coming back this week from a ten day stay in Italy. I was excited to share with the audience my meeting with Pope Benedict XVI. It was a great afternoon with a great group of people!
