Participating restaurants donate a percentage of their proceeds on September 8-11 to the 9/11 Tribute Museum to honor all those who were lost and to pay respect by highlighting the resiliency and strength of the 9/11 community.
NEW YORK, NY – September 7, 2017 – To commemorate the 16th anniversary of September 11th, the 9/11 Tribute Museum will partner with restaurants for the 3rd annual Dine Out for 9/11 Tribute. Beginning Friday September 8-Monday September 11, 2017 restaurants in New York will donate a percentage of their proceeds to support education programs of the 9/11 Tribute Museum, which provides programs to 8,000 students and teachers annually to teach the impact of 9/11 for middle and high school students.
Dine Out for 9/11 Tribute (#DineOutFor911Tribute) will take place on the weekend of the anniversary of the September 11th attacks, and promote the mission of the 9/11 Tribute Museum. The 9/11 Tribute Museum is a project of the September 11th Families’ Association, dedicated to collecting and sharing the stories of those who were directly impacted by 9/11. The Tribute Museum provides a cultural and historical context for understanding the events of 9/11 through the personal experiences of the 9/11 community – family members, survivors, first responders, rescue and recovery workers, volunteers, and Lower Manhattan workers and residents. It provides an understanding of the loss and impact of 9/11 while demonstrating the resilience and recovery of New York City, the country and the world. Since opening in September 2006, the Tribute Museum has served more than 4 million visitors spanning every U.S. state and nearly 140 countries around the globe. This year’s participating restaurants include: Acqua Restaurant & Wine Bar, Boundless Plains Espresso, Ecco Restaurant, Little Park, and Locanda Verde.
Dine Out for 9/11 Tribute is an outreach effort to market Tribute’s expanded programs and exhibitions, which have an increased focus on public service, civic responsibility, and community resilience. One example of paying it forward in Tribute is the Seeds of Service Gallery which invites visitors to plant a seed of service by supporting an issue, making a donation or contributing their skills to a cause they care about. The new location allows the Tribute Museum to triple annual capacity and help to support the restaurants that will partner for Dine Out for 9/11 Tribute that are revitalizing Lower Manhattan by directing visitors to the many wonderful options in and around the World Trade Center.
