LET'S KEEP THE FIRST NIGHT TRADITION OF A FIREWORKS FINALE ON THE LAKE AT MIDNIGHT GOING!
First Night® First Night is excited to announce a new campaign on Adirondack Gives, Adirondack Foundation's crowd funding site for nonprofits, community groups and municipalities.
We're raising money for the fabulous fireworks display that celebrates the stroke of the New Year at First Night®. "This is a chance for the whole community to be a real part of First Night," said Sue Patterson, co-chair of First Night.
The project will be live online at this link until January 2 and the goal is to raise $1,000.
This is the ninth First Night® Saranac Lake, and as we've said from the very beginning, WE CAN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOU!
