Help Bastrop State Park win $100K
BASTROP -- After last year’s devastating wildfire, recovery is under way. Now there’s a way you can help bring Bastrop State Park back from the ashes. Coca-Cola will provide a $100,000 grant to the park that receives the most votes during its national “America Is Your Park” competition, that ends just before midnight on Sunday, July 15.
Bastrop’s Lost Pines wildfire -- the most destructive in Texas history -- resulted in a three-month closure of the state park, causing serious financial losses for a site that draws 170,000 visitors a year and has an annual $2 million economic impact on Bastrop County.
Everyone who loves Bastrop State Park can make a difference by casting a vote at Coca-Cola’s www.livepositively.com/parks. And while on the website, be sure to register your FourSquare account so you can earn the park 100 votes simply by “checking in” when you visit the park.
