On behalf of the Museum Board of Directors and staff, we give special thanks to Dinner Hosts, Elizabeth and John Massey; and Dinner Chairs, Dawn and Todd Aaron, Lisa and Neil Goldberg, Lisa and Steve Lieberman, and Elaine and Trevor Pearlman. Thanks to their tireless work and for the generous support of so many of you, this year’s dinner is the most financially successful fundraiser in the history of our Museum … THANK YOU!!
We raised more than $1,900,000 and from that, we are proud to announce that 100% of revenue above the net goal will be the corpus of the newly-established Fenves Family Education Endowment Fund of the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum, in honor of President Fenves' commitment to education and the entire Fenves family. Through this endowment fund, economically-challenged middle and high school students will be able to learn the invaluable lessons of the Holocaust by visiting the Museum, free of charge, in perpetuity.
This is an exciting time for our Museum. On September 17, 2019, a dream forty years in the making will come true: the grand opening of the new Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum! The new 55,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility will allow us to accommodate over 200,000 visitors annually – more than doubling the number we currently reach. Come visit our current facility to see first-hand how we are positively impacting attitudes and changing behaviors through education, and be there with us when we open the doors of the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum next fall.
With deepest gratitude,
Mary Pat Higgins
President and CEO
