GLENN CLOSE HONORED AT
THE PRINCESS GRACE
 AWARDS GALA

 

 

On Wednesday, October 15, 2008, the Princess Grace Foundation–USA hosted the Princess Grace Awards Gala at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City and presented 21 Awards to emerging artists in theater, dance and film, as well as two Princess Grace Statue Awards to artists who have previously won Awards and have shown achievement and growth in their respective fields.  Every year, the Princess Grace Foundation-USA (PGF-USA) proudly awards these grants at its annual gala to support its mission of providing crucial support to emerging artists in America.  This year, PGF-USA awarded more than $750,000. 

 

PGF-USA was proud to present award winning actress Glenn Close with the Prince Rainier III Award in recognition of her outstanding career and contribution to the arts.  This award was presented to her by award winning actor Ted Danson, her Damages co-star.  Tony® Award winning actor and Glenn Close co-star in Barnum, Jim Dale served as the evening’s emcee.  The Gala took place in the presence of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco.

 

The evening included dinner, dancing, silent auction, live auction and award ceremony.  A highlight of the evening was a live auction featuring a walk-on part in an episode of Law & Order donated by Platinum Sponsor and series writer/producer, Dick Wolf.  The winner of this lot was famed tenor Placido Domingo.  All auction proceeds benefited the Princess Grace Awards to advance its mission of providing crucial support to emerging artists in America.

 

Noelle and Dick Wolf, Emmy® Award winning writer/producer of Law & Order and Dolly Lenz, Vice Chairman of Prudential Douglas Elliman were the evening’s co-chairs.
