The evening at The Simon Wiesenthal Center’s Museum of Tolerance will begin at 7:30 PM; doors open at 6:45 PM. The Survivor Mitzvah Project, according to a press statement, is an "urgent humanitarian effort to aid the last survivors of the Holocaust in Eastern Europe who are still suffering over 70 years after the start of the War. Their families and communities destroyed by the Nazis, they struggle in their few remaining years, lacking the means to buy even the most basic of human necessities: food, medicine, heat and shelter. Most live alone in horrific conditions. The Survivor Mitzvah Project offers help quickly and directly to these survivors, helps ensure that they may live out their last years with some measure of comfort, support, and dignity."
The project was founded by television director Zane Buzby.
The Museum of Tolerance is located at 9786 West Pico Blvd. For tickets, priced $360, visit http://www.Bit.ly/SurvivorMitzvahEventTICKETS or call (800) 905-6160.
