WaterWorks fundraiser for fire relief is a cool success
REDDING, Calif. —
A local water park hosted a fundraiser benefiting the Shasta County Fire Relief Fund, and offering the public a chance to escape the Carr Fire and heat for a good cause.
According to WaterWorks Park General Manager Rebecca Ortiz, all proceeds from Thursday night's special fundraiser will go the relief fund. The United Way and several local businesses partnered with the park for the event, which drew well over the expected turnout for the night.
Tickets were $15 for the event, which allowed guests to enjoy the park from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Live music, food and entertainment were all included in the ticket price.
Based on the success of Thursday night's event, Ortiz said the park will consider holding more fire relief fundraisers in the future.
