WE NEED YOU! (we really do)
Kirklanders! In less than 5 weeks we will be celebrating our 14th annual Celebrate Kirkland! 4th of July.
The 4th of July celebration has become a signature event for our community. It allows us, on one of the most special holidays of the year to celebrate our city, our children, our friends, families, neighbors, businesses, churches, organizations- all of who make Kirkland such a special place to live and raise our families.
So far this year, we have not been able to come up with funding that would cover our annual fireworks display. Many HAVE stepped up. Lee Johnson Auto Family is the primary and naming sponsor of the parade, and companies like Overlake Oil, Wave Broadband, Astronics, the McLeod Group representing Milagro and Hectors, The Grape Choice, Waste Management and Ford of Kirkland have done their part. Many individual and families have donated as they do every year and we are still $25,000 short. :-O. That means we will have our parade and we will have our picnic in the park but unless and until we can find the additional $25k we will not enjoy fireworks this year.
What would a Kirkland 4th of July be without our fireworks display? Can you help? We need 25 organizations to step up to $1000 a piece or 250 families to donate $100 a piece or 500 Kirklanders (there are 80,000 of us!) to find $50 a piece. Donations to this event are tax deductible and eligible for employer match through the KDA's 501c3 status and a receipt or invoice can be provided.
