A Ford Thunderbird, donated by the Korum Ford automobile dealership in Puyallup, is part of the fund-raising for this year’s Independence Day celebration in Eatonville.
Sales of $1 tickets for a raffle of the car will help pay for a professional fireworks show on July 3 and other costs related to the community event. Other fund-raising has generated about $3,500 of the $9,000 goal, said Audrey Thompson, one of the event’s organizers.
Donations can be mailed to the July 3-4 community celebration at P.O. Box 1086, Eatonville, WA 98328. Information is available from Thompson at Thompson’s Licensing Agency (360-832-8366) and Karen Woodcock at All About You Salon (360-832-1722).
