The Americana Stars 9/11 Memorial SeeksYour Help

The Americana Stars Memorial is a 200-foot long mural consisting of 50 separate fabric panels memorializing the victims of September 11, 2001 and 1993. There will be more than 2984 stars cross-stitched by hand, a different one for each victim with the victim’s name stitched under their star.

The Harbor Light Pub, located at 129-18 Newport Avenue, Rockaway Park, will be hosting a special “Thank You” Buffet and Raffle with open bar and acoustical music accompaniment on Saturday, October 20 from 1 to 4 p.m. for everyone who participates in the memorial project’s Sponsor- A-Star program by October 18.

With your $50 donation to the Sponsor-A-Star program, you will receive a certificate of thanks and be listed in the directory that will be mounted with the final project wherever it is shown worldwide. The victims’ families will receive a certificate notifying them of your sponsorship.

The primary goal is to have the stars of every victim from the Rockaways and Broad Channel sponsored. You can go to www.AmericanaStars.org and click on the Sponsor-A-Star button in the left sidebar. It is an easy two-step process.

The Americana Stars Memorial is officially sponsored through Fractured Atlas, a 501(c)3 non-profit arts service organization in New York City. All sponsorships and other donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. One hundred percent of all funds will be used for project expenses. The Americana Stars Memorial recently received a wonderful endorsement from Jan Seidler Ramirez, the chief curator of the official National 9/11 Memorial Museum in New York City, which can be seen on the Press page of the website.

For more information, please refer to the website, www.AmericanaStars.org. You can send an email to Doreen from the bottom of each page.
