KIRO-F/Seattle Aims To Save Fireworks Show
April 1, 2010 at 11:49 AM (PT)
This year's SEATTLE 4th of JULY fireworks at GAS WORKS PARK have been cancelled, but if BONNEVILLE Talk KIRO-F (NEWS TALK 97.3 KIRO FM)/SEATTLE, midday host DAVE ROSS, and the station's MYNORTHWEST.COM have any say in the matter, they and their listeners and readers may just save the event.
ROSS, KIRO, and the website are staging a "Rockets Red Glare Pledge-a-thon" to save the fireworks show, aiming to get $500,000 in pledges by next week. If the goal is met, ONE REEL marketing and communications director MIKHAEL MEI WILLIAMS has committed to staging the event. ONE REEL, a non-profit organization, produces the show each year.
