Wolfs to receive White Rose Award


Nancy and Jonathan Wolf

The White Rose Tribute event, to be held April 11 at the Orlando Museum of Art from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m., will honor Jonathan and Nancy Wolf with the Tess Wise White Rose Award. The evening will feature a commemorative program, culinary treats, local wines and an exclusive update on the new Holocaust Museum for Hope and Humanity.

Jonathan and Nancy Wolf's dedication to diverse causes includes support for the Orlando Museum of Art, Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando, and the University of Central Florida. Through the Nancy and Jonathan Wolf Global Academic Initiative a partnership between UCF and the American University of Cairo was established.

The White Rose Tribute event is organized annually by the Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center. This year marks the 36th year of celebrating visionary leaders who exemplify inclusivity in Central Florida. Named after the center's founder, the Tess Wise White Rose Award honors the legacy of The White Rose, a nonviolent resistance group against Nazi tyranny during World War II, by recognizing community members who actively promote a more inclusive and respectful society. The event not only commemorates individuals and organizations for their contributions toward education, arts, culture and community service, but also supports the Holocaust Center's educational initiatives.

The Orlando Museum of Art is located at 2416 N. Mills Ave., Orlando.
