HOUSTON, TX (Aug. 31, 2005) As a gesture of compassion and assistance for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, Holocaust Museum Houston will donate all proceeds from admission to the Museum through the Labor Day weekend to the American Red Cross on their behalf.

"Our heart goes out to our neighbors to the east, and we are happy to donate all entry proceeds through this busy weekend for use in helping them get back on their feet," said Peter Berkowitz, chairman of the Museum’s Board of Directors.
