The Princess Grace Foundation-USA will present actor Tim Daly with the Prince Rainier III Award at the group’s upcoming gala on Oct. 16.
Daly, brother of actress Tyne Daly, is being recognized for his “outstanding artistry and exemplary give-back.” Daly currently stars in CBS’ Madam Secretary, which had its fifth-season premiere Sunday night, and has previously had roles on Private Practice and the ’90s sitcom Wings.
Daly also serves as the president of The Creative Coalition, an organization that works with leaders in the arts community to promote art advocacy and education.
The Princess Grace Foundation-USA is a nonprofit named after Grace Kelly, who became Princess of Monaco when she married Prince Rainier III in 1956. Its mission is to support emerging talent in theater, dance and film through scholarships, apprenticeships and fellowships. The Prince Rainier III Award provides a grant of $25,000 to a philanthropic organization chosen by the recipient. Previous recipients of the award include Julie Andrews, James Cameron, Robert Redford, Glenn Close, Queen Latifah, George Lucas, Mandy Patinkin, Pauletta & Denzel Washington and Dick Van Dyke.
“In addition to [Daly’s] impressive work as an actor on both stage and screen, I applaud his devotion to supporting the arts by way of his decade-long commitment as the President of The Creative Coalition, a group that educates leaders in the arts community on issues of public importance, specifically arts advocacy and education,” said Princess Charlene of Monaco said.
Added Toby E. Boshak, executive director of the Princess Grace Foundation-USA: “Recognizing Tim Daly with the 2018 Prince Rainier III Award reinforces the Foundation’s commitment to celebrating noted artists who use their own celebrity to make an impact on their community. Tim’s leadership of The Creative Coalition ensures that the arts continue to be part of all our lives and that artists are empowered to have their voices heard.”
The gala will be hosted by Tony Award-winning actress Bebe Neuwirth and features Tyne Daly, Katharine McPhee and Leslie Odom Jr. as presenters. Other previously announced honorees include Sam Gold, Tony-winning director for Fun Home, and Kyle Abraham, MacArthur Genius Fellowship Award winner and founder of the dance company A.I.M (Abraham.In.Motion).
The awards ceremony will take place at Cipriani 25 Broadway in New York in the presence of Princess Charlene of Monaco.
