“It was such a joy to sit and watch our donations go up in smoke,” Bay Days fireworks fundraising committee chairperson Eric Eakin said Monday, July 6, after a successful Bay Days weekend that saw thousands pack Cahoon Park for Saturday night’s fireworks display.
“Were it not for the many people who donated to the fireworks fund or who purchased raffle tickets, we would not enjoy fireworks at Bay Days. We especially want to thank the Sunnyside Auto Group and the Freedom Boat Club for the continued support,” said Eakin.
“Thanks also to the members of the Bay Days fireworks fund for their hard work: Tony Dostal, Tara Wendell, Jennie Mace, Dominic Giovannazzo, Mindy Stroh, Tom Henderson, Dave Tadych, Tom Stillwell, Camille Sheehan, Eileen Vernon, Lisa Wilson and George MacDonald.
“While Bay Days 2015 is now behind us, Bay Days 2016 is ahead of us, and our fundraising efforts must continue if the fireworks are to continue,” Eakin said. “Follow our mission at www.bayfireworks.org.”
