Dinner Raises More Than $1 Million for the Holocaust Museum

Honoring the contributions and inspiration that amazing people have given to our society is always a joy for us to hear about. At the beginning of this month, the life and memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Holocaust survivor Gerda Klein were honored at the Lydon Baines Johnson Moral Courage Dinner at Houston’s Hilton Americas Hotel, an annual event by the Holocaust Museum.

Houston CultureMap informed us that the annual Moral Courage Award Dinner is a ceremony sponsored by Houston’s Holocaust Museum, and it raises funds to support the museum. Almost 900 people attended the dinner and made generous contributions totaling over $1 million.

The two honorees are linked together by their amazing human spirit and the legacies they left behind, which offer hope for all those affected by the Holocaust as well as the American civil rights movement. Keynote speaker John Lewis perfectly summed up the theme of the night with six simple words, “one people, one community, one world.”

We are thrilled that the event was such a success for the amazing piece of history we have right here in Houston, The Holocaust Museum. If you haven’t gotten a chance to visit, take a couple of hours out of your schedule to gain a perspective of our past and appreciate our present.
