“Our vision and commitment have remained unwavering since our founding, and each new generation inspires us further to demonstrate our ongoing relevance in today’s world. The benefit program spotlights the stories of the museum’s leaders and supporers who transcend several generations and hail from across the nation.
“We are hopeful for the future as new generations engage with the museum to continue its vision toward a better world.”
