I know the champagne has barely popped on our annexation celebration, but I wanted to catch you while you are still drunk and generous. Some of our favorite Kirkland events such as the 4th of July, the holiday tree lighting, flowerpots downtown, the Classic Car Show, the Wednesday Market and concerts in Marina Park are lacking some serious funding. Instead of complaining after the fact (i agree, the holiday lighting event seemed a little bare bones last year), open you wallet and help now. Every dollar
counts- no amount is too little. When planning events, COOLNESS costs MONEY. Here's a link to the "Give a Little Get a Lot" campaign. Forward it to everyone you know in Kirkland that loves these events! Welcome to Kirkland Kingsgate, Finn Hill and Juanita--can you spare some change?
If you've already written your last check and your wallet has dustbunnies- here's another idea. Donate goods or services to the 2011 4th of July Auction. Call or email Kellie Jordan 425-466-4364. It's tax deductible. And we're shooting for.......gasp..........$60K by July 4th. Can we do it? Here's info on the event: Friday June 10th at the Marina Park Pavilion from 6-9pm with a $10 donation at the entrance. There will be live music and drinks and, assuming you all pick up the phone and start emailing Kellie, lots of great items in a silent auction. You can even win a champagne cruise around Lake Washington with Steve and I on our boat. Or some advertising on the Kirkland Weblog. Wow, I know, it's like a dream come true. LOL. Show us what you've got, Kirkland. ~j
