Music superstar Bruce Springsteen; esteemed businessman and philanthropist Peter G. Peterson; Avon Chairman and CEO Andrea Jung, and famed NBA All-Star Dikembe Mutombo are this year's distinguished honorees who will be recognized during the Ellis Island Family Heritage Awards to be held on Thursday, April 22, 2010 at 11am in the Great Hall at the Ellis Island Immigration Museum.

NBC News Anchor Brian Williams will serve as MC and Lee Iacocca, Founding Chairman of The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation will present the awards.

In its ninth year, the Ellis Island Family Heritage Awards are presented by The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc. to celebrate exemplary Ellis Island/Port of New York immigrants or their descendants who have made a major contribution to the American experience. The B.C. Forbes Peopling of America Award, sponsored by the Forbes Family, honors the lives of immigrants who arrived at another time or through another port of entry. The Foundation's database of ship's passenger arrivals -- available at the American Family Immigration History Center and online at www.ellisisland.org -- documents the arrivals of 25 million immigrants, travelers and crew members who came through America's Golden Door and the Port of New York between 1892-1924.
