All the cash is counted - we are still $1,267.25 from our target.
As a reminder here are the details of what we are now expected to pay (please see our prior blog post where our costs rose):
|Fireworks Show 2014||$11,925.00|
|Fire Department / Overtime||$2,400.00|
|Board of Ed||$480.00|
|R Band and Sound (cancelled)||$0.00|
|2014 Total Show expense||$24,959.00|
|To estimated show target||($1,267.25)|
|Original 2014 Goal||$30,000.00|
|To 2014 Campaign Goal||($6,308.25)|
We are not going to make our 2014 campaign goals (which would have allowed us to save the R Band performance as we did last year) and we need another $1,267.25 to simply restore the show.
The clock is ticking.
You can donate by mail; make checks out to: “Wallingford Fireworks Fund” and send to:
Wallingford Fireworks Fund
c/o Jason Zandri
35 Lincoln Drive EXT
Wallingford, CT 06492
The main issue now with getting checks via mail is their clearing in time to present a check to the town by the deadline date.
We also accept donations by PayPal
Every dollar helps us reach that goal – we are only going to get there with your help.
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.
Thank you for all your support to date – a little more gets us over the line with effectively no time to spare.
We have successfully done this in each of the prior four years (since 2010) – I know we can do this again.
