The White Rose Tribute Event
Honoring the Massey Family

April 28, 2021

Outdoor Cocktail Reception

5:30P.M. – 7:30P.M.

75 South Ivanhoe Blvd. (Senator Beth Johnson Park)

The theme for 2021 will be Generations of Generosity as we proudly honor a fitting recipient for the Tess Wise White Rose Award, the Massey Family. We are thrilled to host this outdoor reception and program on the future site of the Holocaust Museum for Hope & Humanity! Please join us in celebrating the Masseys and in raising crucial funds to support vital programs which allow our organization to provide students of all ages with unique and inspiring educational opportunities. 

Generations of Generosity

Harvey and Carol have three children (daughter Andrea Massey-Farrell pictured here with husband James, son Tony with his wife Jann), and ten grandchildren and live in Winter Park.

The White Rose Award is meant to remind us of the White Rose resistance movement against the Nazi regime in Germany during WWII, specifically the actions of a group of courageous students horrified by atrocities committed by the Nazis. 

Calling for non-violent activism against Hitler and the Nazis, the group consisted of students in their early twenties led by Hans and Sophie Scholl.  They worked day and night to create flyers appealing to the moral conscience of the German people to resist the tyranny of the Third Reich. 

The individuals honored with this award by the Holocaust Center are active and vocal members of our community.  Like members of the White Rose movement, it is their belief that only through participation can we build a better home and better society for all.  For the Massey Family, the values of inclusiveness and respect are central to their efforts which are wide-spread across Central Florida.

Harvey and Carol Massey’s philanthropic interests in education, arts and culture, human and health services, and community service, is evidenced by their generous gifts to many worthy organizations. In recognition of their community involvement and their dedicated support of our Holocaust Center and the vision for the new Holocaust Museum for Hope & Humanity, we look forward to presenting them with the Tess Wise White Rose Award.

In following the latest recommendations for COVID compliance, a limited number of tickets will be made available.

Deadline to appear as a supporter in the formal invitation is February 1, 2021.  The deadline to purchase and submit a digital program ad is March 1, 2021.

Thank you in advance for your support!  

Together we will continue building a more inclusive and respectful society.


The Holocaust Center is very thankful to all our supporters
