Our 2014 Gala was the most successful ever, sharing stories of courage, liberation and service which changed our country and our lives.
Thank you to our extraordinary Presenting Partners, all our generous sponsors, and all who joined us. Those who attended experienced a moving evening of gratitude to and celebration of those who valiantly served and continue to serve our county and all of us, with exhilarating music and applause…and the stirring journey of Dr. Leon Bass and his WWII service, liberation of Buchenwald concentration camp, turning anger of segregation and racism into civil rights activism and action, a vice for nonviolent protest and racial and religious freedom for over 70 years.
