Ernest Honored with Humanitarian Award in Chicago
Posted on 21 July 2009
Ernest Borgnine was the guest of honor Saturday night at the Italian-American Chamber of Commerce’s 102nd annual gala dinner.
The 92- year- old actor is the recipient of the organization’s 2009 humanitarian award. He was honored not just for his long acting career, but also for his service in the U.S. military during World War II.
Chicago’s own Dennis Farina presented Borgnine with the award.
