Paul J. Napoli and Marie Napoli along with their colleagues and friends attended the Eighth Annual 9/11 Memorial Benefit dinner last night. We are proud to have supported this year’s “legacy of service” focused event as “Friends of the Memorial”.
Honoring the lives of those who were lost is at the heart of the memorial’s mission. Occupying eight of the 16 acres at the World Trade Center, the Memorial is a tribute to the past and a place of hope for the future.
Having worked very close to Ground Zero at the time of the attacks, these events hold a special significance for us, as we continue to strive for justice for our clients in these events.
About the 9/11 Memorial
The National September 11 Memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the 2,977 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center site, near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon, as well as the six people killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993.
The Memorial’s twin reflecting pools are each nearly an acre in size and feature the largest manmade waterfalls in North America. The pools sit within the footprints where the Twin Towers once stood. The architects created the Memorial design selected from a global design competition that included more than 5,200 entries from 63 nations.
The names of every person who died in the 2001 and 1993 attacks are inscribed into bronze panels edging the Memorial pools, a powerful reminder of the largest loss of life resulting from a foreign attack on American soil and the greatest single loss of rescue personnel in American history.
