This year OPIS is pleased to host a silent auction to benefit The Michael Lynch Memorial Foundation.

Established by the family and friends of Michael Francis Joseph Lynch, FDNY Badge # 2315, it is a charitable foundation dedicated to providing educational opportunities to the children of firefighters, both fallen and active, as well as children of other victims of the September 11th attacks.

Michael Lynch, a son, brother, uncle, fiancé, relative and friend, sacrificed his life along with 342 other firefighters at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. This foundation was created to honor Michael's sacrifice and memory. The generosity of the people who loved Michael, and of many who never knew him, has enabled his family and friends to build a hope-filled vision for the future by assisting families that were impacted by these events. Though his career was ended too soon, Michael’s family and friends take comfort in knowing that Michael loved his work, and their hope is that this scholarship program will allow these students to pursue their dreams.
