Clinton, Bush, Boehner to host Flight 93 event
PITTSBURGH — The National Park Foundation says two former presidents and the speaker of the U.S. House will host a fundraiser in Washington for the Flight 93 National Memorial.
The foundation said Monday that former President Bill Clinton, former President George W. Bush and House Speaker John A. Boehner will host the benefit May 15. The bipartisan event aims to secure funding for the complete memorial, including a learning center and a Tower of Voices containing 40 large wind chimes.
The first phase of the memorial was dedicated in September.
The site honors the 40 passengers and crew members who died when the airliner crashed in a field about 75 miles southeast of Pittsburgh on Sept. 11, 2001. Passengers fought terrorists for control of the hijacked plane that was believed to be targeting Washington.
