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 and 10 grandchildren (pictured here are daughter Andrea Massey-Farrell with husband James and son Tony with his wife Jann). Not pictured are daughter Angela Riganese and her husband Shane. Harvey and Carol live in Winter Park.
The Tess Wise White Rose Award, presented each year by the Holocaust Center, reminds us of the actions of a group of courageous students in Germany during WWII who created a non-violent resistance movement called, The White Rose. The group of students, led by Sophie Scholl and her brother Hans, worked day and night to publish flyers criticizing Germans who did nothing to combat the Third Reich’s tyranny.
The individuals honored with this award are active and vocal members of our community. Like The White Rose, they believe that only through participation can we build a better home and a better world for all.
For the Massey family, the values of inclusiveness and respect form the foundation of their philanthropic efforts that include significant investments in education, arts and culture, human and health services across our Central Florida community. In recognition of their dedication to our community and generous support of our Holocaust Center and its vision for the new Holocaust Museum for Hope & Humanity, we are honored to present the Tess Wise White Rose Award to multiple generations of the Massey family!
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 12, 2021. The deadline to purchase and submit a digital program ad is April 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
