HHREC Annual Benefit
Safeguarding Our Shared History
The HHREC community will gather for our Annual Benefit on Thursday evening October 26th at the beautiful Westchester Country Club in Rye, New York. This year we will honor Sam Rosmarin and Kathy Zaltas, who will be presented with the HHREC Eugene M. & Emily Grant Spirit of Humanity Awards.
Our program will also feature a live theatrical performance of Letters from Anne and Martin, a unique theatrical performance featuring the powerful words of Anne Frank and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. These two iconic, historical figures will be brought to life by actors as they echo the hopes, aspirations and dreams that inspired Anne Frank’s Diary and Dr. King’s Letters from Birmingham.
