Donate to support Bay Days fireworks
Donations are being accepted for the fireworks display at Bay Days this year.
The Bay Days fireworks display costs $11,000 a year, and it is up to the community to raise half the money for the display; the sale of Bay Village promotional items at city hall mostly finances the other half.
Many Bay Village civic organizations count on the revenues they raise at Bay Days to finance the scholarships they provide, to fund their civic-improvement programs and for other projects. Without the fireworks finale, Bay Days attendance would drop precipitously and so would the funding upon which these organizations rely.
The Bay Days fireworks committee has established a website, www.bayfireworks.org, to raise awareness of this effort.
The website explains the funding situation and offers a way to make donations via PayPal through the Bay Village Foundation website, www.thebayvillagefoundation.org. (The Bay Village Foundation is overseeing funds collected for the fireworks display.)
The fundraising group is also soliciting corporate and other sponsorships. Call 216-386-5997 for details.
It would be a shame to let the Bay Days fireworks display fizzle out. Please consider a donation or sponsorship.
