Meryl Streep, Vanessa Redgrave, and Dr. Mathilde Krim will pay tribute to the late Natasha Richardson at amfAR's annual gala to be held on February 10 at Cipriani. Richardson, who died last March, is a former amfAR board member.

Along with the tribute, the evening will feature the presentation of amfAR's Award of Courage to Sir Elton John, Yves Carcelle, and David Furnish. The award is given to individuals for outstanding leadership and distinguished service in furthering amfAR's mission, and for playing a vital role in increasing AIDS awareness and accelerating the pace of HIV/AIDS research.

The black-tie dinner and auction, now in its twelfth year, will also include special performances by Lady Gaga and Rufus Wainwright.
