The 22nd Anniversary Commemoration Benefit is a fundraiser for Citizens for the Extension of the James Zadroga Act, Inc., a grassroots advocacy organization whose mission is to support injured and ill 9/11 responders and survivors who are still to this day suffering from their exposure to toxins at Ground Zero in New York, the Pentagon and the Shanksville crash site in the aftermath of the 9/11 attack.

Citizens for the Extension is working to build nationwide, bipartisan support to make sure Congress provides sufficient funding for the World Trade Center Health Program to continue to provide medical treatment and monitoring for the thousands of injured 911 responders and survivors who live in every State and in 434 out of 435 Congressional Districts.

After years of having to fight to get Washington to recognize the size and scope of the health crisis facing so many, we still need to make sure that their health needs are being addressed and that the program has the resources it needs now and in the future.


Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, Congressman Andrew Garbarino, General Secretary-Treasury Emeritus Armand E. Sabitoni, and the members of Laborers’ International Union of North America who have been champions of the 911 community day in and day out throughout the years. We honor these individuals and the organization for their work to ensure that all 9/11 responders, survivors, and their families receive the health care and compensation they need and deserve.

Tickets are $250 each.

You can reserve a ticket in two ways:

Contributions or gifts to Citizens for the Extension of the James Zadroga Act., Inc. are not tax-deductible as charitable contributions because the organization is a section 501(c)(4) nonprofit that conducts grassroots advocacy activities.
