LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The Louisville Waterfront Development Corporation is looking for your help in donations to make up for massive cuts to their budget.

Waterfront Park officials sent out letters to 850 potential donors.

They are in search of $200,000 to avoid having to cut Waterfront staff or events.

State lawmakers cut the waterfront budget for the next two years and waterfront officials were forced to come up with a $2.1 million budget after that.

The Independence Festival, that happened every Fourth of July, was already cut out of the waterfront budget in 2013.

The Louisville Waterfront Development Corporation will be a big part of the 100th anniversary celebration of the Belle of Louisville that will happen in October.
