New York, NY, Sept. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — To mark the 18th anniversary of September 11, Zac Brown’s Southern GRIND, in collaboration with Blackfish and Atlantic Signal, created the 9/11 limited edition Tunnel to Towers Spider Monkey Knife to honor the lives of our fallen American heroes.

We are glad to partner with the Tunnel to Towers Foundation,” said Zac Brown, founder, frontman and lead vocalist for the multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning, Zac Brown Band and Southern GRIND’s Owner.
To honor and support America’s heroes, $125 dollars of each purchase will be donated to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, whose mission is to support the families of fallen first responders, Gold Star families and catastrophically injured veterans.
“Zac Brown’s dedication to the military is present in his music, at his concerts and with his work at Camp Southern Ground. I am so proud to partner with him on creating a blade that not only pays tribute to first responders and service members, but will also help us continue our mission to support those heroes and their families,” said Frank Siller, Chairman and CEO of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
