Last year the Family 4th at Lake Union was saved thanks to donations from Seattlites and local companies from the area. Over $500K was raised and the fireworks show that followed was considered one of the best ever by many.
The success of last year’s fund-raising doesn’t mean this year’s celebration is all set, however. Although 68 percent of the event budget has been secured, another $162,000 needs to be raised by March 1st in order for the 2011 show to go on.
If you’re interested in helping, there’s a couple ways to do it.
You can make a donation directly to Family 4th at http://family4th.org by March 1st (site may load slow due to increased traffic).
You can also show your support and encourage others to join the campaign by downloading one of the Family 4th widgets to your website or blog.
