Betty Galvano, Florida
BETTY GALVANO has been a Red Cross Volunteer for the past 20 years so you know she was (and still is) in the thick of things in the hurrican aftermath.  She's been dubbed "The Hugger."  Many of the victims are poor and Spanish-speaking, but a hug says "I care" and "I love you" in any language.

Galvano Construction, run by her son, Richard, is currently busy rebuilding.  Meanwhile, her other son, Bill Galvano, formerly Majority Leader, is now President Elect of the Republican Party.  

Prior to the hurricans, Betty reports that the RC is "very popular" all over Florida after the article featuring her early New York career and the Rehearsal Club was picked up by the media from Miami to Orlando.

Excerpt from article by Lindsay Downey:

". . . Galvano, a grandmother of eight, says none of it -- the accidental modeling career, the acting and commercial gigs and her marriage to the late pro golfer and TV host Phil Galvano -- would have been possible if it hadn't been for a four-floor brownstone on West 53rd Street in New York City."
