2018 National Tribute Dinner
Benefit Event

6 p.m. Reception
7 p.m. Dinner

On the occasion of the Museum’s 25th anniversary, we will bestow our highest honor, the 2018 Elie Wiesel Award, on all survivors of the Holocaust in recognition of their resilience, courage, and commitment to Holocaust memory and education. For 25 years, they have challenged us to never stop asking why.

The featured speaker is David M. Rubenstein, Co-Founder and Co-Executive Chairman of The Carlyle Group. Mr. Rubenstein began his career as a lawyer and served as Deputy Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy during the Carter Administration. In 1987 he co-founded The Carlyle Group, which is one of the largest global alternative asset managers. A strong advocate of “patriotic philanthropy,” he is Chairman of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Madison Council of the Library of Congress.
