Chamber to sponsor 9/11 event with ground zero speaker

Published on August 7, 2014 by Editor

FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a 9/11 event to be held in the Bob Burton Center at Fallbrook High School at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 11. The guest speaker will be FDNY retired emergency medical technician Regina Cervantes.

Cervantes was at ground zero on Sept. 11, 2001 when the towers fell. She was subjected to the blinding, choking cloud from which she became disabled and is now medically retired. She has written several books and now lectures as a motivational speaker seeking to find positives out of all situations.

“As our mission is two-fold: remembrance and education, we feel Regina is a wonderful fit for our venue and we invite all Chamber members and Fallbrook citizens to attend this compelling and memorable event,” said Bob Hillery.

As there will be expense incurred to bring this speaker and ceremony to the Burton Center, residents who wish to provide sponsorship or make contributions to offset expenses are encouraged to contact Lila or Jackie at the chamber office, (760) 728-5845.
