NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Vice President Mike Pence and Second lady Karen Pence will participate in The Tunnel to Towers Foundation September 11 Memorial Ceremony on Friday, honoring the victims of the terrorist attacks, the group announced Tuesday.

As 1010 WINS previously reported, the White House announced last Wednesday that the Pences would travel to New York City on Sept. 11.

The Staten Island-based Foundation is hosting the independent memorial ceremony after the National September 11 Memorial & Museum announced the traditional reading of the names by victim’s family members would not happen at its ceremony this year, citing coronavirus concerns.

President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden announced they will visit the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, on September 11.
