In Coronado, the 4th of July is a year-round undertaking. The Coronado Fourth of July Committee, all local volunteers, headed by President David Szymanski, is in the process of gearing up for the 2019 celebration. As a way of kicking off our planning, we would like to reiterate our thanks to our sponsors from this past July whose generosity makes the events a reality.

We would like to thank some of the local organizations and businesses that enhanced the celebration: The City of Coronado for their generosity over the years in helping make sure the celebration takes place. For sponsoring an Announcer Station, we would like to thank the Coronado Brewing Company, Tartine Café, Dr. Electric, Berkshire Hathaway Realty, Lee Mather/Ascent Realty, the Rotary Club of Coronado, and McP’s Irish Pub. The Steve Johnson’s Coronado Times is a great assist in our donations and the official website for the Coronado 4th of July Committee. The Coronado Eagle and Journal is a great assist to the community in keeping everyone appraised of the celebration and supplying parade programs within the Coronado Magazine.

Some of those organizations and businesses have been supporting the day for over ten years and the Committee and our spectators appreciate that. The newest donor to help fund the celebration is the Port of San Diego. We truly appreciate their generous support and hope they will be able to back the celebration for many more years.

The cost of the day’s celebration is about $75,000. There are three specific levels available for donors: Contributing Patron ($250), Sponsor ($150) and Supporter ($100). If you would like to contribute to make 2019’s Independence Day activities outshine past years, please send your contributions to: Coronado 4th of July, Attn: Donation, P.O. Box 180541, Coronado, CA 92178-0541.

All donations are tax deductible to the full extent to the law.

If you would like to volunteer your time and/or talents to the day’s activities, please contact the Committee at Coronado4thofjuly@usa.net.
