Proceeds from the “Never Forget Concert” benefit the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, an organization that provides mortgage-free homes to catastrophically injured veterans and first responders and Gold Star and Fallen First Responder families with young children. The foundation was founded by Frank Siller and his family in memory of his brother, firefighter Stephen Siller, who was off duty when he ran through the Hugh Carey Tunnel (Brooklyn Battery Tunnel) to the World Trade Center and ultimately laid down his life to save others on Sept. 11, 2001.
