Glen Campbell to Receive Special Award

Glen will be honored for his fight against Alzheimer’s.

Glen Campbell, who has been battling Alzheimer’s disease in recent years, will be honored with the inaugural Glen Campbell Courage Award during the 22nd annual A Night at Sardi's event in Beverly Hills, Calif., March 26. Glen and his family will receive the award for publicly sharing Glen’s story and for their advocacy in fighting Alzheimer’s.

A Night at Sardi's benefits the Alzheimer’s Association and features appearances and performances by some of the top names in entertainment. Acclaimed songwriter Jimmy Webb, who penned many of Glen’s best-loved songs, including “Wichita Lineman” and “Galveston,” will perform a tribute to Glen. A musical revue will highlight legendary tunes from such great Broadway musicals as Gypsy and Funny Girl. Since its inception, the event has contributed more than $23 million in support of the Alzheimer’s Association.
