Mention Harris Rosen’s name and it conjures up images of beautiful hotels and successful restaurants. Lesser known is his dedication to what he calls “responsible capitalism” and decades of generosity that reaches literally around the world.
Here in Central Florida The Harris Rosen Foundation has generously supported the Holocaust Center for more than 20 years. Other community investments include the Rosen College of Hospitality Management at UCF, and the Jack and Lee Rosen Southwest Orlando Jewish Community Center. He has provided extraordinary opportunities through his Tangelo Park Program, including free preschool education, mentoring, and a college education for every Tangelo Park student who graduates from high school.
Internationally, Harris Rosen has long been involved in Haiti, providing food, education and healthcare supplies to that nation. Recently his work expanded to include the building of a Little Haiti House Village, a community that eventually can become completely self-sustaining. He is also part of an initiative to help the South African government create jobs and reduce unemployment.
Harris Rosen personifies the heart of the Holocaust Center’s mission by dedicating himself to creating a more compassionate and just world. Please join us in honoring him and supporting our efforts to create a world free of prejudice and bigotry.
