The Kate is honored to present the one and only Cher with the 5th annual Spirit of Katharine Hepburn Award during BELIEVE!, our virtual gala on Saturday, October 3 at 7:30 pm (EDT).
No tickets required, the event will stream for FREE on the Kate’s YouTube channel and our Facebook page.
The award is given annually to an individual who embodies the bold spirit, fierce independence and distinctive character of the legendary Hepburn. This year’s virtual gala theme is in honor of Cher’s biggest multi-platinum No. 1 hit of the same name and the Kate’s positive belief in the future of the arts. Cher, an Oscar, Grammy, Emmy and Kennedy Center honoree has enjoyed enormous success in the realms of film, TV, music, Broadway and as a global performer.
A long time humanitarian, Cher most recently formed CherCares which helps supply much needed equipment to under-served communities. She has often cited Katharine Hepburn in scores of interviews as an inspiration throughout her career. Appearances by past Award recipients Dick Cavett (2016), Glenn Close (2017), Ann Nyberg (2018), and Christine Baranski (2019). More special guests to be announced!
