The Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center recently hosted its signature event: the annual Humanitarian Awards Dinner.
More than $2.5 million was raised to support the educational mission of the Museum. Former Great Britain/Northern Ireland Prime Minister Tony Blair, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner provided remarks.
The museum honored Chicagoans Mitchell Feiger and Pamela L. Netzky with the Humanitarian Award, along with the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, represented by David D. Hiller, with the Distinguished Community Leadership Award.
