Katherine Harper Presented Woman of Spirit Award at American Red Cross Benefit by Morton's Steakhouse


Published: 08.13.2007

Charlotte, N.C., August 13, 2007 - The American Red Cross is partnering with Morton's The Steakhouse to recognize America's "Women of Spirit" at exclusive wine dinners held coast to coast. Charlotte is one of the 38 cities participating in recognizing an exemplary woman from its region.

Katherine Harper was recently selected as Charlotte's "Woman of Spirit" because of her generosity and commitment to community service and philanthropy.

"Mrs. Harper was chosen from many wonderful nominations of area women who demonstrate an exceptional commitment to volunteerism and service," says Shanna Cochrane, General Manager of Morton's SouthPark.

Morton's SouthPark hosted the exclusive dinner on Tuesday, August 14. A portion of the ticket price and all money raised at the silent auction went to benefit the American Red Cross.

Harper founded Harper Corporation of America with her husband, Ron. Their innovative company is an international success with an established foundation that has supported educational institutions locally as well as internationally. Among the many recipients of Harper's generosity is Central Piedmont Community College and Appalachian State University's graphics program on the Boone campus.

However, Harper was distinguished at this event for the Katherine Harper Disaster Staging Area within the new Sadie Fowler Disaster Center of the Greater Carolinas Chapter of the American Red Cross. Harper and her husband have been supporters of the American Red Cross for many years. This disaster staging area will improve response time to benefit citizens of this region in crisis.

The reception and dinner menu included Morton's signature cuisine paired with exquisite, carefully chosen Banfi wines.

The Women of Spirit dinner tour will conclude in late September with an "all-star" gala event honoring America's "Women of Spirit" and the American Red Cross, to be held in Washington, DC, at the Morton's in Georgetown, which will also be celebrating its 25th anniversary. This culmination event promises to attract nationally known political, entertainment and media personalities.
