To support the 2013 Dinner, which will include a tribute to Sir Dennis Weatherstone, former Chairman of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation’s Board of Directors.
The British Memorial Garden Trust, Inc. doing business as Queen Elizabeth II September 11th Garden, was prompted by a desire to honor and memorialize the 67 British subjects who lost their lives in the tragic attacks of September 11, 2001. The Garden’s mission is to celebrate the friendship and unity between the US, the Commonwealth countries and the United Kingdom; honor the British and Commonwealth victims of the attacks of September 11, 2001; create new life and growth in Lower Manhattan; bring British and Commonwealth heritage and arts initiatives to the community and City of New York; and honor the Queen upon the occasion of Her Diamond Jubilee.
