Thank you for so generously supporting the 2017 Hope for Humanity fundraiser - what an inspirational evening!
Feedback from the dinner has been incredible, and the overwhelming success of the evening is because of YOU - thank you! Through table sponsorships, contributions, ticket sales and night-of support, you helped us not only reach, but EXCEED our financial goal for the event, raising more than $1,035,000 to help fund our important work that positively impacts 84,000 visitors annually, almost half of whom are students!
I am inspired and humbled by your generosity. Your investment in our mission is a worthwhile one. Net proceeds from the dinner will directly support our year-round educational and community outreach initiatives like our Upstander Speaker Series, our educational Curriculum Trunks, and our Law Enforcement Education Training, just to name a few. At the Museum, students and adults alike encounter the inhumanity of the Holocaust, but also realize that it was perpetrated by people just like them who turned a blind eye to the suffering of those around them. Your support plays a critical role in our efforts to teach the past in order to open minds and challenge people to think critically about their behaviors. Together, we are making a difference by creating Upstanders in our community - THANK YOU!
To Lauren Embrey - Thank you for your ardent support of our work here at the Museum, for all you do to advocate for racial and gender equality, and for reminding all of us - through the important work of SMU's Embrey Human Rights Program- that "There is no such thing as a lesser person."
I wish to extend my deepest gratitude to Dinner Co-Chairs, Sarah Losinger and Trea Yip; Development Chair, Melanie Kuhr; and to the Underwriting Committee. Thank you for not simply inviting new support to our dinner, but for passionately inspiring deeper engagement with our mission through your actions and advocacy.
I look forward to seeing you at the Museum!
