Many thanks to our friends who attended Triumph 2017: The Freedom Writers Story. It was a lovely evening at Quail West Golf & Country Club, with over 200 people in attendance to hear the inspirational words of Erin Gruwell.
We also had the opportunity to hear about the local impact of your Holocaust Museum from Alison Kearney, the Curriculum Resource Teacher at Bonita Springs Charter School. Alison has been working with the Museum for over 8 years and shared about her students’ connection to our local Survivors.
Artist Juan Diaz was also on had to present “The Garden”, the Museum’s tribute to the beautiful legacy of those Holocaust Survivors and WWII Liberators who were so integral to the Museum’s programs.
What an incredible evening! You can read about it here from the Naples Daily News.
