                                      THANK YOU KANSAS CITY!


The June 9, KC Festival of Fountains was a huge success, with more than 3,000 people enjoying the activities, entertainment, food and especially the free trolley tours to see our beautiful fountains. The trolley tours were in such demand we could not accomodate all who wanted to ride. We had about 1000 spaces on the trolleys and mini-buses but tickets for all the rides were gone by mid-afternoon. Your attendance, patience and understanding were very much appreciated.

The Board of Directors of the City of Fountains Foundation would like to publicly thank our many volunteers, entertainers and participating groups as well as the Union Station, the Kansas City Parks and Recreation Department for their help in making all of this possible. A special thank you goes to major donors for their financial and in-kind support.

We estimate that the final talley of your donations for our fountains will be in the neighborhood of  $5000. Hats off to Kansas City and our visitor for making our Festival such a success as we kick off our campaign to raise $2.7 million for eight fountains in serious need of repair.
