…to help finish funding this great American community tradition!

The 4th of July is less than a week away and the Three Tree Point Fireworks Fund still needs to raise over $3,000!

Each year, Burien’s Three Tree Point neighborhood puts on a barge-based, high-altitude professional fireworks show on the 4th of July.

This display is enjoyed by many area residents, but it can’t be continued without donations – this is an all-volunteer non-profit organization that must raise $25,000 to keep this local tradition alive.

“Through the generosity of residents, the Fireworks Fund has raised just about $22,000 for this year’s event,” said Laura Beth Peterson, Co-Chair. “But we need at least $25,000 to pay for everything – like 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.”
