The Tulip Time Festival in western Michigan needs to raise $1 million to stem losses from this year’s canceled event due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Festival organizers have created a GoFundMe page for donations.

When the festival was canceled, there were $400,000 requested in ticket refunds. Tulip Time only had $180,000 available in cash.

The festival director says says Tulip Time is a vital part of the community and needs to continue its 90-year tradition. She’s hopeful the money can be raised.

The nonprofit says it could will run out of money in August if they don’t receive further financial help.
