#HowSeattleRiots Fixing the Pergola
$15,975 of $15,000 goal
On Sunday February 2nd, the Seattle Seahawks made history by dominating Superbowl XLVIII and the 12th Man roared in triumph. From Bothell to the U-District, Ballard to Pioneer Square, we filled Seattle streets with our dancing, cheers, and Seattle's iconic polite style of celebration. Polite or not, there was a party foul in Pioneer Square. Seattle's historic Iron Pergola was damaged to the tune of $25,000. Now it is time to clean up after ourselves, because this is truly #HowSeattleRiots
Let's give the parks department some help in replacing the things we broke, and show that the Seahawks truly have the best fans in the league.
In addition, if you still want to donate here is a link to the Seattle Parks Foundation.
We are grateful that the Seattle Parks Foundation is accepting today's gifts so graciously. It certainly has started quite a conversation about all things fundraising.
Most important, know we THANK YOU; we loved doing it and Seattle is a great place to live. We love you, fans.
Amanda, Shana, and Gretchen
Steelers fan here and I am glad I was able to help, been a resident since 1997 and I love this state! Congrats again to the Seahawks and their fans! Great cause here...
I hope this reopens. I would love to donate!
Ya know what? This thing is going viral. Up the goal. Let's fix the pergola and get Seattle parks a little more cash for whatever they need. Don't turn down the Volume 12 too early!
I believe it is because Seattle Parks received a $10,000.00 donation directly to their offices. So, combine that with the existing donations that poured in here, and the $25,000.00 goal was met and then some!
@AJ read the most recent update from the page.
If the damage costs$ 25k+, why did the donations stop at 16k? Still a $9k difference.
I wish I had donated before it closed so I could have been part of this, but this is awesome and the true 12th man spirit!
Wohoo. Just shows how great the 12th man really is. Knew we could do it! To bad I don't get paid till Friday.. now I don't get to donate. :(
Awesome Amanda. Thanks for taking the lead on this. People love being a part of and giving to specific efforts like this. Can't wait to see the new glass work
You should keep up the collections and not only fix the Pergola, but donate the additional to the Parks Dept and have them add in a Seahawks sculpture! Improve the entire square area!
Just about that action, boss.
I was standing near the Pergola when the damage happened and I can attest that the broken glass was done accidentally by the people walking about on top. The damage was not done to intentionally harm the city. I am happy to contribute to the cause!
Maybe, the Seahawks will pay this. Seeing that the fans were willing to pay some of the players fines? Just saying.... I've posted like crazy everywhere about this! Keep it going!!

I'm a Niners fan of all things and I want to help as well. It's not much but I hope it gets you closer to your goal. Congrats on your win, and I hope this helps.
I just tweeted this to Paul Allen!
Awesome solidarity 12ths! Let's show the world that Seattle is conscientious and responsible as well as dominant! Go Hawks!
