SEATTLE — More than $26,000 has been raised to pay for repairs to the glass broken by people who climbed on the Pergola in Seattle’s Pioneer Square while celebrating the Seahawks Super Bowl victory.
Organizers posted that a $10,000 donation had been made Tuesday and more than $16,000 had been raised in online crowd funding.
Many of the donations came in $12 sums in reference to the team’s 12th Man fan support.
The Seattle Parks Department had estimates repairs will be around $20,000 to fix 20 panes on the century-old ornate glass archway.
Spokeswoman Joelle Hammerstad says they are working with the Seattle Parks Foundation and Alliance for Pioneer Square.
