The Arizona Interfaith Movement will honor Holocaust survivor Oskar Knoblauch at its ninth annual Golden Rule Awards Banquet March 25 at the Mesa Convention Center. Knoblauch has spoken to more than 10,000 people in the past four years “spreading the voice of tolerance and respect,” according to his website, voiceoftolerance.com.
The Arizona Interfaith Movement honors individuals or organizations “living out” the Golden Rule, a universal life principle contained in most faith traditions and many secular codes of ethics, according to a release.
The organization will also honor Jerry Colangelo; AZ Brainfood; the Queen Creek High School football team; Casa Maria, Tucson Diocese; and the Virginia G. Piper Foundation led by Executive Director Judy Mohraz.
Phoenix broadcaster and KTAR News executive Pat McMahon will serve as master of ceremonies for the event.
The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a “Faith Fair” reception where many different faith traditions will provide a representative to answer questions. The dinner and program starts at 6:30 p.m.
Tickets for the event are $80 each or $600 for a table of eight. Proceeds will benefit Golden Rule in Action events educational programs and the mission of the Arizona Interfaith Movement.
