Hawaiian Falls to donate proceeds to West ISD
Waco, TX — A local waterpark hosted a fun day in the sun for the town of West.
Hawaiian Falls in Waco will be donating money from Friday's event to West ISD.
The park let kids from the district in for free and offered a generous discount to all other residents of West.
First responders of the April 17th fertilizer blast were also in attendance.
Park managers said it’s an easy way to help the community.
The gates opened at 10:30 a.m and by noon, hundreds were already getting wet.
“We’re donating a portion of our front gate proceeds to the town of West," said Evan Barnett, manager of Hawaiian Falls. "We’re doing it in part to give back. We are about the community. We are about fun. We just want to give one day where they don’t have to worry about anything. They can just come out and have a good day with their families.”
West ISD needs money to help replace two schools and a football field destroyed or severely affected by the explosion.
