Don DiFranco Scholarships Fundraiser

19 Oct, 2021

20th ANNIVERSARY FUNDRAISER FOR THE DONALD  DiFRANCO


9/11 MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP


Don DiFranco  was a NABET-CWA Local 16 member doing his job as a WABC-TV engineer at the Channel 7 transmitter site on the 110th floor of the World Trade Center North Tower. He perished when terrorists flew a hijacked American Airlines jet into the building on September 11, 2001. Don was known for being a strong Union member and outstanding engineer.  


For the past 20 years, Local 16 has honored Don's memory by providing higher education scholarships to deserving students from Local 16 families. Funding for these scholarships comes completely from donations to the Donald DiFranco 9/11 Memorial Scholarship Fund. 


Local 16 is now conducting this special fundraiser to mark the 20 years since Don's passing. Our goal is to raise at least $20,000 to provide scholarships through 2031.
