Thank you for your donations & support!

On September 11, 2021, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the attack on the United States of America, The Lady Patriots donated $3,000.00 to Tunnel to Towers Foundation. 

The Tunnel to Towers Foundations honors the sacrifice of firefighter Stephen Siller who laid down his life to save others on September 11, 2001. After working his shift, Stephen had left the firehouse and headed to Long Island to meet his brothers when he heard of the attack.  He called his wife and immediately turned around his truck to head back. But the tunnel had already been closed to vehicular traffic.  Stephen put on his 60-lbs of firefighter geared and hiked from the Tunnel to the Towers to save lives.  

This amazing organization was set up by his family and is dedicated to honor our military and first responders  who continue to make the supreme sacrifice of life and limb for our country.

Show your support for our Military, Veterans &
First Responders!

100% of proceeds will be donated directly to programs to support Eastern Shore heroes who have done so much to support our country and community!

Only $20!  Buy one for a friend's garden too!

In January 2017 eight women - friends and colleagues – decided they wanted to do something meaningful and rewarding that would involve the recognition of our local veterans and first responders.

We started with an ambitious project ... to raise $16,000 for an all-terrain wheelchair before the October 2018 Hunting Season.

Then we received a call from a veteran's widow with a leaking roof.


We couldn't say no and continued with our grass roots, old-fashioned fund raising methods.

Thanks to our Sponsors and the generous Eastern Shore community, our first two projects have been successful.

While we have grown from 8 to 38, we can use your help.  Please join us!
