BOMA NY Presents Civic Betterment Award to Tunnel to Towers Foundation

BOMA New York has presented the 2021 Civic Betterment Award to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation. The award, which was presented at BOMA New York’s recent holiday luncheon, recognizes organizations that have made major contributions to help make New York City a better place to live, work and play. 

Alexander Trotta of CBRE, and committee member of the Civic Betterment Award committee, presented the award. Other committee members include John Esslinger of Boston Properties and Committee Chair Mark Furman of CBRE.   

Trotta said, “There were many worthy organizations nominated this year. With the 20th anniversary of 9/11, we felt Tunnel to Towers was the clear decision to further help the countless families of wounded or perished first responders.” 

BOMA NY chair and CEO Hani Salama and Trotta presented a $2,500 check to the Foundation and urged all in attendance to contribute what they can to the essential organization.
