Staten Island, N.Y – June 28, 2022
In celebration of Henry Repeating Arms’ 25th anniversary, CEO and Founder Anthony Imperato recently presented a $50,000 check to Tunnel to Towers Foundation Chairman and CEO Frank Siller; the first donation of a $1,000,000 Silver Anniversary pledge to various charities through the company’s Guns For Great Causes program.
The Tunnel to Towers Foundation was founded in December 2001 by the surviving siblings of Stephen Siller, a member of the New York City Fire Department whose heroic actions on September 11, 2001, resonate throughout the city and the country to this day. On his way to a golf outing with his brothers after working his shift with Brooklyn’s Squad 1, the World Trade Center’s North Tower was attacked, and Stephen answered his call of duty. After turning around to grab his gear and realizing he could not drive through the closed Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, Stephen strapped his equipment to his back, ran through the tunnel on foot, and ultimately laid down his life to save others. In honor of Stephen’s sacrifice, Tunnel to Towers pursues a mission of supporting the country’s first responders, military veterans, and their families with mortgage-free homes, having supplied over 450 to date.
Henry Repeating Arms, one of the country’s leading firearms manufacturers, will offer 1,000 unique Henry Golden Boy Silver Anniversary edition rifles for sale in the coming weeks. Sold exclusively online, 100% of the proceeds will benefit charities supported by the company’s Guns For Great Causes program – including sick children’s hospitals, military veterans, law enforcement and 1st responder organizations, wildlife conservation, hunting and shooting sports education and pro-Second Amendment endeavors. To be notified when this limited-edition rifle becomes available, visit henryusa.com and sign up for the email newsletter.
