CELLULAR ONE TO SPONSOR 1993 LAKE UNION FIREWORKS

 CELLULAR ONE TO SPONSOR 1993 LAKE UNION FIREWORKS
 SEATTLE, July 3 /PRNewswire/ -- One of Seattle's most loved events,


the Fourth of July fireworks show over Lake Union with the Seattle Symphony, will return next year with the support of Cellular One in cooperation with Car Toys. Following the disappointing cancellation of the 1992 event, Cellular One stepped forward with a commitment to funding the event in 1993 and into the future.
 Cellular One Family Fourth at Lake Union will again feature the elements that made the event a cherished tradition in just four years: an extraordinary and brilliant fireworks display, custom-crafted in Japan specifically for the Lake Union site; free mini-concerts by Northwest musical artists at Gas Works Park; a free outdoor concert by the Seattle Symphony, featuring popular and pops music performed live during the fireworks display; and a live simulcast of the Symphony show on Classic KING FM.
 Clark Kokich, director of sales/marketing at Cellular One, expressed his company's enthusiasm at being part of the celebration by saying, "We at Cellular One shared the disappointment felt by many of Seattle's citizens at the cancellation of the 1992 event, and so are extremely pleased to be able to make a long-term commitment to a community event of this caliber. The Fourth of July is a great family day, a day to feel connections as a city and a state, and we are excited about continuing the outstanding tradition started by Fratelli's here in Seattle."
 "I want to commend Cellular One for stepping forward. The concert, fireworks, and other fun activities on Lake Union are a wonderful Seattle tradition. For many people, it just wouldn't feel like summer without the Symphony and fireworks and sailboats on Lake Union," said Seattle Mayor Norm Rice.
 Peter Morse, co-founder of Fratelli's Ice Cream and one of the original visionaries of Fratelli's Family Fourth, shares Kokich's sentiments. "The Family Fourth began as a gift to the citizens of Seattle, and we're both proud of our role in realizing that dream and pleased to see the event continue under the sponsorship of Cellular One. Our companies share the same commitment to the community and sense of civic pride and involvement." Fratelli's will put more of an emphasis on community involvement with their unique Community Grants Program.
 In 1993, Cellular One Family Fourth will take place July 4 at Gas Works Park at Lake Union. The fireworks and symphony showcase is sponsored by Cellular One and Car Toys, with support from Classic KING FM and Foss Maritime. The event is produced by One Reel.
