The Human Rights Campaign is holding its annual HRC Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday, where Scarlett Johansson will be honored with their Ally for Equality Award.
Johannson recently started to get involved with aid efforts in Haiti, but this particular award recognizes efforts made on behalf of the LGBT community, and is given to those who have dedicated their time, energy, and spirit to better the lives of LGBT people.
“Scarlett Johansson has been a tremendous friend to the LGBT community and has for many years used her celebrity and talents to advocate for our rights,” HRC Los Angeles Gala Co-Chair Andrew Arnold stated. “We appreciate and honor her support as an ally with this award.”
The gala will be held at the Ritz-Carlton/JW Marriott in Los Angeles, and will feature appearances from Jessie Tyler Ferguson of “Modern Family” and celeb trainer Jillian Michaels of the “Biggest Loser.” Typically the event draws more than 1,000 eager guests, and if you want to be part of the evening, tickets are still on sale (granted, it’ll cost you $275 for the cheap seats, and up to $400 for the VIP treatment).
