REMINDER: Three Tree Point Fireworks Corporate Donor Party Is Saturday
[DISCLOSURE: BTB Publisher/Editor Scott Schaefer is serving as Co-Chair of the all-volunteer, non-profit Three Tree Point Fireworks Fund this year.]
REMINDER: The big Corporate Donor kickoff party for the Three Tree Point Fireworks Fund is this Saturday, April 9th, starting at 3pm at the Tin Theater (at 923 SW 152nd in Olde Burien), and all local business leaders who understand the value of helping their community are invited.
Guests to the party will enjoy free champagne, appetizers and a screening of a “great American popcorn movie” in Burien’s finest HD cinema, recently named the #2 “Best Indie Theater” in KING5’s “Best of Western Washington” poll.
This is the fourth year that Corporate Donors have been sought, and we’re happy to announce our first such Sponsor – Dr. Jim Coleman, DDS, of Seahurst Dental Design!
The Fireworks Fund needs around $25,000 for this year’s event, which includes the fees of the professional pyrotechnics firm that puts on the show, as well as barge, tug, security, insurance, permit fees and dumpsters for the all-important 5th of July clean up. Corporate donors will help offset the costs, which are also made up by donations of area residents.

Here’s some info from the Three Tree Point Fireworks Fund website:
The Three Tree Point Fireworks celebration is supported entirely by donations from the communities of Three Tree Point, Seahurst, Normandy Park, Seola Beach, Arroyo Beach, Arbor Heights and others.
Our barge based, high-altitude fireworks show has gotten better every year thanks to countless people who have donated time and money.
In 2011, our goal is to keep the fireworks and community celebrations at the same great level that they have been at. This will be the fourth year we are seeking corporate sponsors for our event.
We raise funds in May to ensure we have time to get all the permits, insurance and the best vendors.
Originally started by the Miller family as a gift to The Three Tree Point Community, the firewoks tradition was continued by neighbors when the Millers moved away.
In addition to the fireworks, the neighborhood traditions of pancake breakfast, kids games, flag raising with awards, bike parade and more have been ushering in summer at our great community. What a great place to live!
