It’s about 30 minutes long and gives you some of the history and the details regarding the cause this year.
Our deadline for the donation to the town is May 30th (20 days from this posting) – we still need about $17,000.00 to have the base show.
It’s up to us – donate if you can.
Here is the blog post for the Dinner Fundraiser on Thursday the 15th.
You can mail your tax deductable donation (we are a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization - tax id# is 27-2576599) to:
Wallingford Fireworks Fund
c/o 35 Lincoln Drive EXT
Wallingford CT 06492
We also accept donations online via Paypal
As a reminder of all the costs we have to bear:
Pyrotechnics (fireworks) $11,925.00
R- Band $2,090.00
Public Works $ 400.00
Port-o-Lets $ 200.00
The above costs are $15,715.00 and the fireworks are $11,925.00 for a total of $27,640.00
I am still waiting on the costs for the Fire Marshall, the Board of Ed person for Sheehan and the overtime for the Fire Department and the Police Department as the Fund is responsible for those costs as well.
In 2013 those costs were:
Board of Ed $ 425.00
Fire Marshal $ 950.00
Fire Department Overtime $2,100.00
Police Department Overtime $8,250.00
