The family of Firefighter Michael Cawley, who died at the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, has scheduled their third annual benefit party in his honor.
Cawley, of Flushing, was one of the Rescue 4 members who lost his life while attempting to save occupants of the Twin Towers after terrorists flew two planes into the center.
Formerly with Ladder Co. 136 in Elmhurst, he died at age 32.
The event was scheduled to be held at Mulcahys restaurant in Wantagh, L.I. on Saturday, April 3, from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.
A donation of $25 is suggested for attendees. The money will go to three scholarship funds at Archbishop Molloy High School in Flushing and to a camp for disabled and underprivileged children, said his father, Jack Cawley.
The first year the event was held, Cawley said 1,500 people attended. Last year 1,400 people showed up for the party.
Live music, a hot buffet and drink specials will be provided along with a silent auction and raffle prizes.
