The Three Tree Point Fireworks Fund Needs More Funds
The Three Tree Point 4th of July Fireworks Fund drive ends on Sunday, May 31st, and Chairwoman Julie Dow says that so far they’ve raised $9,400 of the $21,000 goal â€“ less than half of what it’ll cost to put the show on.
So consider this post a push to make your donation now for Burien’s best barge-based, free fireworks show on a great beach â€“ donate online now!
The $21,000 covers the cost of the barge, fuel, tug, insurance, permits, fireworks and professionals to run the show, police protection for the area (which is being increased this year) and dumpster rental.
That has been the goal the last two years as well.
Here’s a note from Julie:
Hi Scott, we’re at about $9,400 which includes pledges (checks not received), but we need to raise the remaining $11,600 by May 31st!
The support from “outlying” neighborhoods (Normandy Park, Arroyo, Seloa, Arbor Heights) has been outstanding, but oddly, Three Tree Point itself has been notably behind.
We have sought corporate sponsorship this year, and while we’ve had lots of interest, so far we’ve only signed up Key Bank, Windermere, Color Printing Systems and The B-Town Blog.
So if you’re interested in sponsoring the fireworks, or giving a donation, please click here â€“ you can donate online or via snailmail. This is an amazing celebration of Americana in a great neighborhood!
