This year’s event holds a special significance, as it will posthumously honor the legendary performer George Michael, a dedicated friend, volunteer and supporter of the organization and to date, its largest individual donor. He will receive the Elizabeth Taylor Humanitarian Award, named for the iconic star, who was both a generous and loyal benefactor.
Adam Lambert will perform a special musical tribute, including a selection of George Michael’s most memorable songs. Other confirmed celebrities include: Kenny Goss, Charlie & Max Carver, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Sharon Lawrence, Cheryl Tiegs, Mary Wilson, Hal Sparks, Tyler Henry, Carson Kressly, Lawrence Zarian, and Gayle Anderson. Local celebrity chefs Rory Herrmann (Barrel & Ashes), Jason Neroni, (Rose Café), Neal Fraser (Redbird/Vibiana) and Stuart O’Keeffe will also be in attendance.
