GEORGE SLEIGH, World Trade Center attack Survivor

Join us for the September AultCare Fast Break Breakfast when 911 World Trade Center attack survivor, George Sleigh shares his stories of survival of two attacks on the World Trade Center.  

On September 11, 2001, Sleigh and eleven co-workers were in the only occupied office on the 91st floor of the North Tower. He noticed a low flying plane passing the Empire State Building and headed his way. That plane would hit just a few floors above his office.

Eight years earlier, Sleigh was in his office on the 101st floor when it was attacked with a truck bomb. He and his co-workers would go up to the observation deck before climbing down 106 stories to safety.

You won't want to miss this enthralling speaker's stories of survival and faith.  This event will be a sell-out, so register early.
