McCaffrey’s Market owner Jim & Lisa McCaffrey and nationally Syndicated TV and Radio host Michael & Lavinia Smerconish have agreed to each match any one-time gift to the “Remembrance Fund” endowment! We are ecstatic to say we have already raised over $1.8 million! With your help NOW, we will meet our $2 million goal by this year’s 20th anniversary of the attacks on our nation.
Jim and Michael are Board Members for the 9-11 Memorial Garden of Reflection, Inc., a non-profit established to protect the Garden. They have each agreed to match up to $25,000 in matching donations for the Remembrance Fund endowment. Once funded, this endowment WILL provide for the maintenance and upkeep of The Garden in perpetuity, ensuring future generations can enjoy this exquisite memorial as we do today.
Jim McCaffrey said: “The Garden has always been near and dear to me. Especially in these difficult times, Lisa and I are excited to be able to match gifts to the Remembrance Fund to provide for the perpetual care of this very meaningful memorial. It’s great to know that this endowment will allow The Garden of Reflection to continue long after we are all gone.”
