Our cash on hand total is currently $18,230.00 and there is a $900.00 pledge from my former employer Microsoft still outstanding.
You might have already seen from my post yesterday - WALLINGFORD FIREWORKS FUND – Closing the gap with a grant from New Life Church – New Life Church (website - http://www.InNewLife.com) has made a pledge to match all new donations dollar for dollar up to $2,500.00 from now to the end of collections on Friday.
This means, effectively, if we can raise just $2,500.00 more in new donations we can clear the total amount due and have the show paid for by the close of business on Friday.
My father is out collecting at Dunkin Donuts this morning and he’ll be out there on Thursday and Friday as well. I am taking Friday off myself to collect additional donations. All of these cash donations will be part of that matching grant from New Life Church so every dollar you give now counts twice.
You can also make a donation via PayPal to the fund right off our website at http://wallingfordfireworks.org/. Donations there will also be applicable to New Life Church’s matching grant as well as all monies mailed and received by Friday. If you want to mail in your donation please try to do it today or Thursday morning the latest so that we might receive it in time to apply it against their matching grant offer.
Checks can be made out to the Wallingford Fireworks Fund and mailed to “c/o 35 Lincoln Drive EXT Wallingford CT 06492.”
This is the home stretch Wallingford so let’s do what we do best – pull together and get it done!
