HL fireworks fundraising underway
Seeking assistance with the funding of the 2011 Fourth of July Fireworks, the Houghton Lake Chamber of Commerce met at a fireworks fundraising meeting March 15.
Discussed at the gathering of chamber members and concerned citizens was a plan to sell VIP seating for fireworks spectators.
Executive Director Linda Tuck said a limited number of seats will be available and the location of the seating has not been determined. The idea is to charge $25 per ticket for the preferred seating. The cost will include a meal. A golf outing and other perks may also be incorporated.
Sponsorships will also be available at different funding levels: Red, up to $100 or more; white, up to $50; and blue, up to $25.
The Houghton Lake Merchants Association, in conjunction with the Houghton Lake Chamber of Commerce, will run a “Light up the Lake” fundraising campaign. Paper starbursts may be purchased at participating businesses for $1 and $5.
Fireworks donation forms will soon be available on the chamber web site and in upcoming editions of the Resorter. Call 366-5644 for information.
