The Greater Bothell Chamber of Commerce and the Northshore Rotary Club 5030 will be hosting a Bothell Fire Fund Block Party on Thursday with all proceeds going to businesses affected by last Fridays fire.

The party will feature beer, wine and food available for purchase and donations are also encouraged. The event will be held along Main Street in downtown Bothell near the Bothell Mall, which housed many of the businesses and which was destroyed in the fire.

First responders will also be honored.

Brittany Caldwell, director of the Greater Bothell Chamber of Commerce, said her organization and the Rotary Club set up an eight-person advisory board to monitor and distribute funds, with a tiered list of priorities.

Businesses who apply for funds don’t need to be members of the Chamber and any business who was damaged or adversely affected by the fire can submit an application.

“This is all about who we are, I mean, we are the business organization in the community here and this is our focus,” Caldwell said. “We are more than happy to help with these efforts.”

The Block Party will run from 4 to 8 p.m. on Thursday and parking will be located at the Bothell City Hall parking garage and behind Bothell Furniture.

Beardslee Public House is also hosting a fundraiser event today until 10 p.m., and Wildwood Spirits Co. will be having a fundraising event on Wednesday for the owners of the Kozy Corner Cafe.
