Hadassah Schulman & the Naples Holocaust Museum & Education Center receives 2019 Diamond Volunteer Award from Kelly E. Capolino

Hadassah Schulman was honored as a Diamond Volunteer award winner for her work with The Holocaust Museum & Education Center at a cocktail reception held March 21 at Naples Art Association in downtown Naples.

Kelly E. Capolino, local Realtor and philanthropist, is the founder and creator of the annual Diamond Volunteer Awards program which recognizes local charitable organizations for their work in the community.

Schulman has been a volunteer with the Holocaust Museum since 2005. She oversees the Oral/Visual History Project which locates, interviews, records, edits, summarizes, and preserves area residents’ stories of their survival.

A select group of volunteers and board members from The Holocaust Museum were treated to wine, canapés and a networking reception. Immediately following, Capolino presented the framed Diamond Volunteer award to Hadassah Schulman.

The reception also recognized the organization’s volunteers and thanked them for their hard work, countless volunteer hours, and their willingness to be ambassadors for the organization. The Holocaust Museum & Education Center’s mission is to teach the lessons of the Holocaust to inspire action against bigotry, hatred, and violence.

Capolino, a local award-winning real estate professional with Downing-Frye Realty, founded the award program in 2009 with the first awards presented in 2010. Each year groups are chosen based on their exceptional volunteer dedication and the positive influence that they make in the lives of others. This is the 31st award to be presented by Capolino’s Diamond Volunteer Program.
