The Holocaust Center has chosen local activists Susan and Gordon Arkin as honorees at this year’s Dinner of Tribute. For decades, this remarkable couple has identified needs and inspired change throughout our community.
Susan has championed public school education from the classroom to the boardroom – from serving as a volunteer mentor/tutor to being Chairman of the Orange County Public School Board. She served on the Holocaust Center board of directors for 22 years and is presently an Emeritus Board Member. Susan is also a member of the Valencia College Peace and Justice Initiative’s Advisory Council, an Emeritus Board member at the Orlando Shakespeare Theater and is actively involved with the 100 Women Strong Giving Circle and the Evans Community School.
Gordon began his volunteer career as the founding chairman of the Orlando chapter of the National Conference for Christians and Jews (NCCJ). As his commitment to the community grew, so did his involvement in a variety of organizations. He currently serves as the Board Chair of Seniors First, Inc.; he is chairing the New Hope for Kids capital campaign; he established the Business Lawyers’ Pro Bono Project at the Rollins College Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership Center; and he is active in a number of other vital community projects. Gordon has always been, and continues to be, the Holocaust Center’s trusted source of free advice in many areas.
Through their extraordinary efforts the Arkins have bettered the lives of all of us who call Central Florida home. They are wonderful ambassadors for the Holocaust Center and our mission to create an inclusive, caring community where everyone feels welcome and valued.
Reservations are now being accepted. Information about donating auction items and other ways you can sponsor this evening are available by calling the Center at 407-628-0555, and information about reserving an ad to honor the Arkins and to support the Holocaust Center’s programs are available here.
