Brattleboro Radiothon Raises Half of Fireworks Fundraising Goal

Brattleboro now has a hefty sum in their pockets going towards a fundraiser for a display this year. Through a radiothon held recently by WTSA-FM, organizers of Brattleboro’s 4th of July festivities have raised more than half of their $5000 goal.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports that the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks covered all the costs of the parade, which inspired the group “By the People, Brattleboro Goes Fourth” to raise money of their own to sponsor fireworks and other free activities on the holiday.

The newspaper itself and C&S Wholesale Grocers have both offered major contributions towards the fundraising goal and other community donations have brought the town about $2000 away from being able to put on a great display.

If you live in town or are heading there for July 4th, think about contributing yourself, which you can do by visiting their Facbook page at www.Facebook.com/BrattleboroGoesFourth.
