The cash totals are in from the weekend collections – we are still $1,267.25 from our target

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
Police Overtime $9,004.00
Fire Department / Overtime $2,400.00
Port-o-lets $200.00
Fire Marshall $950.00
Board of Ed $480.00
R Band and Sound (cancelled)   $0.00
2014 Total Show expense $24,959.00
Current cash $23,691.75
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.
