BENEFITING: Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation
EVENT DATE: May 15, 2016
On Sunday, May 15th, the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation will hold its second annual Tower Climb at New York’s One World Observatory. I hope you’ll choose to participate in the event with me, or support the Foundation’s mission by making a small donation.
The event pays special homage to FDNY Captain Billy Burke. On September 11, 2001, while responding to the attacks at the trade center, Captain Burke stayed behind to save others on the 27th floor of the north tower, while commanding other firefighters to get out of the building. He was already aware that the south tower had collapsed. He lost his life moments later. Captain Burke’s selflessness is legendary among those in his profession.
Without support and generosity from citizens throughout the country, the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation could not carry out our very important endeavors.
