The most important part of this fun filled weekend is the profits and where they will be going to for this event. Profits will be used to benefit Tunnel to Towers.

Have you ever heard of Tunnel to Towers?

This 9/11 related story always hits home for me and family. Stephen Gerard Siler was on the FDNY and assigned to Brooklyn’s Squad 1. On the day of 9/11, he finished his shift and was heading out when he heard about the plane hitting the North Tower. He returned to Squad 1 to grab his gear, drove his truck to the entrance of the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel but it was closed. Stephen then strapped his gear on this back and fled on foot to the Twin Towers where he lost his life while saving others.

It’s stories like these that remind us of important it is to honor those who risk their lives every day such as police, firefighters and ems.

May we keep the memory of 9/11, the heroes that passed away on that day and Stephen’s story with us as we continue in this life. It’s beautiful how this event filled with fun, love and peace will bring profits to such a charitable organization, Tunnel to Towers.
