The NBFAA and the Alarm Industry Research and Educational Foundation (AIREF) are hosting a dinner on Sept. 10 in New York to benefit public safety.
The dinner, billed as the Heroes Scholarship Fund dinner, is an exclusive dinner planned for a location overlooking the former World Trade Center site. Cost to attend is $95.00 per person, and attendance is limited.
As part of the evening's event, the organizations plan to jointly present a $174,000 scholarship donation to the Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund. The money is to be used to help fund college expenses for the children of those public safety workers who lost their lives in the World Trade Center attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
According to a statement from the NBFAA, attending the dinner as honored guests will be Dr. Clifford Stanley, the president of Scholarship America; New York Police Chief Michael O'Neill; and a representative from the New York Fire Department.
