First Night Cancelled for This Year

First Night Bradford has been cancelled for this year.

The organization’s status as a non-profit is in on hold because paperwork wasn’t filed correctly in the past, so they can’t get the corporate donations that are necessary to pay for entertainers and other costs.

This year, the committee raised about $6,800. They were hoping for $20,000.

The committee is in the process of reorganizing for next year. This is the second time since 1998 the event has had to be cancelled.

The City of Bradford does not run First Night, although the city did help with certain aspects of the event.
