May 16th,2012 Vinny was honored by Kids Are Heroes for his selfless act of compassion for others,but most important his youngest brother, Tony Forte! Please click on the link above for all of the details. Come Oct 27th, 2012 we have been invited to Frederick, MD where the honorees of 2012 will be able to promote their cause and have a private invitation with a Disney Channel Star who will recognize all of the honorees and learn about their causes.
Vinny was also nominated by The Eisner Foundation is now one of their finalists- (he is the youngest among the finalists) in which The Eisner Prize for Intergenerational Excellence is a $100,000 cash award given annually by The Eisner Foundation.(If Vinny would have won the award,both Tony's Fund and Vinny's 501c,3 "Silent Heroes for Brave Children" would have been the recipient's).
The Eisner Prize is designed to recognize excellence by an individual or a non-profit organization in uniting multiple generations, especially seniors and youth, to bring about positive and lasting changes in their community. Unfortunately, he was not chosen to make up the 7 top finalists,however he was acknowledged in being the youngest finalist they ever had nominated and he will be receiving a special separate award for his contribution!
We are extremely proud of his acheivements.... Love You Vinny from Mommy & Daddy,Dominic and Tony!
