The SWR School District community once again showed its pride and shared its generous spirit as they supported the Wildcats boys and girls soccer teams’ recent fundraiser. The event, which brought out hundreds of community members and was sponsored by many who donated raffle prizes, was held to benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation and raise money for the families of the airmen of the Westhampton Beach-based 106th rescue wing who were killed in a crash in March.

More than $9,000 was raised for the organization.

The Tunnel to Towers Foundation raises money to support military servicemen, first responders and their families. It was created to honor firefighter Stephen Siller who died in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The memorable story of his heroism in carrying his gear on his back through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to help others is his legacy.
