Tucson Fire Foundation Honor Firefighters That Lost Their Lives on 9/11/2001 With Two Special EventsThursday, September 9th, 2010
On September 11, 2001, one of the worst acts of violence on American soil took place taking the lives of almost 3000 Americans. 343 of those that died that day were firefighters. On 9/11/2010 these heroic souls will be remembered in a ceremony created by the Tucson Fire Foundation, a new non-profit 501c3 corporation. Postcards will be available to the public to address a remembrance to the FDNY and will be sent by the foundation to New York.
The event will be held at the Art Gallery located north of Speedway on Stone Ave in an invitation only occasion. The incredible photographs of Tucson firefighters by local photographer Sean Stuchen will be exhibited and sold at both events with proceeds going to the foundation. Sean will be present for both days’ events. The special 9/11 happening will be a major fundraiser for the Tucson Fire Foundation created to help firefighters and their families for circumstances beyond the normal coverage provided.
