A fundraiser for “Family 4th at Lake Union,” Seattle’s only Independence Day fireworks celebration, will be held on Monday, April 25 at Jillian’s Billiards Club on Westlake from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

“Over the Top” will be the final fundraising event by the Greater Seattle Chamber of Commerce and non-profit organization One Reel to raise the remaining amount needed, as well as a community celebration in honor of the continuation of the fireworks show.

One Reel, who has sponsored “Family 4th at Lake Union” for more than two decades, has raised more than 80 percent of the $500,000 budget, and the Greater Seattle Chamber of Commerce is calling on its members to raise the additional $90,000.

One Reel announced in January that the July 4 fireworks show would indeed take place, which would not be possible if it weren’t for donations from Seattle’s business community and public.
