Chelsea Clinton will be honored with an achievement award from Variety next month, the magazine announced Tuesday.

The 37-year-old former first daughter, a vice chair of the Clinton Foundation, is rumored to be eyeing a political run in New York, the Daily News reported last month.

Variety, in partnership with Lifetime, will hand out the "Impact Honorees" awards during its annual “Women in Power” luncheon at the ritzy Cipriani restaurant in midtown Manhattan on April 18.

Other winners this year include Gayle King of "CBS This Morning," actresses Jessica Chastain, Blake Lively and Audra McDonald and media executive Shari Redstone.

According to Variety, Clinton is being honored "for her work with Alliance for a Healthier Generation, which empowers kids to develop lifelong healthy habits."

More than 400 entertainment and media insiders are expected to attend, according to event organizers.

The event will be hosted by “Saturday Night Live” cast member Vanessa Bayer.
