Eureka’s Uncle Sam raises money for firework show

Eureka’s Mike Jones, also known as Uncle Sam, is $10,000 short of his goal to light up the Eureka sky for the Fourth of July.

Earlier this month we spoke to Jones, who’d raised half of his $30,000 goal. He tells us that there’s always a chance they’ll have to cut back on the firework show, but with five days left, he still has hope.

Jones says right now they have about 12- 15 minutes’ worth of a firework show paid for. As of right now. The last $10,000 needed would pay for the grand finale. If you would like to donate to the fundraiser you can go to Uncle Sams go-fund-me page.
