Ford's Theatre Gala on June 5

Ford's Theatre's annual gala will be on June 5th this year at Ford's Theatre, where there will be a host of performances, and will be followed by a seated dinner at the National Portrait Gallery.

The evening will include a presentation of the Lincoln Medal to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Julie Andrews.  The award is given to someone who "through their body of work, accomplishments or personal attributes, exemplify the lasting legacy, and mettle of character embodied by . . .  President Abraham Lincoln."

First Lady Michelle Obama serves as the honorary chair of the gala.
