September 11 Memorial

The inaugural fundraising event to build the September 11 Memorial in Greenwich raised $25,000. The event was held at Riverside Yacht Club and included a reading of the names of twenty-nine family members who lost loved ones with ties to Greenwich on September 11. The poignant release of twenty-nine balloons in their honor marked the campaign’s official kickoff. The goal of the foundation is to raise $750,000 to fund the memorial.
