11th Annual Bradley Prizes Set for Kennedy Center Gala Tonight
The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation will present the 2014 Bradley Prizes. The eleventh annual awards gala ceremony will be held at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts' Terrace Theater tonight, June 18, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.
The 2014 Bradley Prize recipients are: Georgetown University Law Professor Randy E. Barnett; Goldwater Institute President Darcy Olsen; Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley A. Strassel; and Wall Street Journal drama critic and Commentary Critic-at-Large Terry Teachout. Each award carries a stipend of $250,000.
"These remarkable individuals set the standard in their respective fields," said Michael W. Grebe, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Bradley Foundation. "Each one embodies the principles of the Bradley Foundation, and each makes the American fabric stronger."
Nationally syndicated columnist George F. Will will serve as Master of Ceremonies and entertainment will be provided by the American Military Spouses Choir.
