They have until Friday to raise 350-thousand dollars mainly from locall businesses for direct flights from Redmond to Los Angeles.

 

EDCO told American Airlines they could raise the money to show community interest in the flights.

 

Roger Lee with EDCO has spent the last week traveling the region raising funds.

 

"It's certainly a solid start.  We've got so little time to get this done.  If we had several weeks I think we would have been ahead of schedule.  But we have until the end of the week, so there's a lot to compress.  We're very close to $200-thousand of the $350-thousand dollars and we are encouraging people to send their peldge forms in along with checks if at all possible."

 

In addition to the 350-thousand dollars in travel vouchers that need to be sold, EDCO also needs to raise 100-thousand dollars in revenue guarantees from different municipalities.

 

Lee says they have those pledges on paper -- the tougher deadline is the 350-thousand dollars from area businesses.  Those pledges are the funds must be collected by Friday at 5 p.m.
