REMINDER: There’s Still Time To Donate To The 3 Tree Point Fireworks Fund!
[DISCLAIMER: BTB Publisher/Editor Scott Schaefer is also volunteering as Co-Chair of the Three Tree Point Fireworks Fund, a non-profit organization devoted to continuing Burien's best barge-based, high-altitude professional fireworks show.]
As May nears its gray, drizzly and at times way-too-cold end, it’s hard to believe that the 4th of July is just over a month away, which means we’re entering the final stretch of fundraising for Burien’s annual Three Tree Point Fireworks Fund.
As you can see in the photo above (taken Tuesday, May 31st), this year’s goal is $24,000, but the total raised thus far is only $12,500 – Organizers still need to raise $11,500, or nearly 48% of the total required to fund this great local tradition.
If you’ve already donated, Organizers shout-out a huge “THANKS for your generosity!” in your direction.
If you haven’t, you can either do it online safely and securely by clicking here:
Or by sending in a check made out to “Three Tree Point Fireworks Fund” to:
Three Tree Point Fireworks Fund
P.O. Box 385
Seahurst, WA 98062
This is a non-profit, all-volunteer based organization, and its sole mission is to help continue a great community tradition.
Money raised for this annual event will go towards fees for 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.
Please note that you do NOT have to live in the neighborhood to donate – if you’ve ever enjoyed the display, or plan on enjoying it in the future, please do your karma a favor by giving something – no donation is too small!
Organizers are also still open to Corporate Sponsors for this year’s festivities, and initial Sponsors include:
Design In A Day
Seahurst Dental Design (Dr. Jim Coleman)
The B-Town Blog (Media Sponsor)
