9 Days remain - $5,400.00 more to raise

A few more checks arrived and a couple of hand delivered donations came in as well so with that we gained on the total show expense of $23,500.00 – we now sit at needing $5,400.00 more to cut a check to the town of Wallingford for the show.

The R Band performance has been deleted from our costs in order to reduce the overall expenditure; if we somehow manage to collect an additional $3,700.00 for their cost, the cost of the sound system and the set up, as well as the associated overtime costs for Public Works we CAN restore the performance but with only 9 days remaining that is not likely.

We will be at the REGULAR TOWN COUNCIL MEETING on TUESDAY May 27, 2014 to report out to the Town Council – if you have the time to make the meeting please consider coming down.

Presently here is the cost line up:

Fireworks Show 2014   $11,925.00
Police Overtime   $8,000.00
Fire Department / Overtime   $2,000.00
Port-o-lets   $200.00
Fire Marshall   $950.00
Public Works   $0.00
Board of Ed   $425.00
R Band and Sound   $0.00
2014 Total Show expense   $23,500.00
To estimated show target   ($5,378.00)
Current cash (and Campus pledge - not yet received)   $18,122.00

So that’s the update right now.

Between now and the deadline I will post regular updates.

In the meantime – if you’ve already supported us, thank you. If you have another few dollars to send in now is the time. The money CAN be raised in the remaining time if people are willing to donate.

It’s 54 more $100.00 donations. Or 108 $50.00 donations. $20.00 more from 270 of you closes that gap.

10,000 people are estimated to be at the show - $1.00 a piece does it.

You can donate by mail; make checks out to: “Wallingford Fireworks Fund” and send to:
