As we close in on our nation’s 243rd Independence Day, the 4th of July Committee would like to thank our donors for their assistance in putting on our day’s celebration, both this year and in years past. This year’s festivities will cost about $85,000. That includes costs for the fireworks (approximately $34,000 for both the barge and the fireworks themselves), the sound system for the parade (approximately $17,000) and the parade’s accompanying costs for insurance, awards, etc. Also included in those expenditures are parade staging at the Grand Stands area and printing costs for letters to the general public and accompanying publicity needs.

The Committee would appreciate receiving your donation to help us provide the best 4th of July possible. Coronado deserves the best! Please consider donating to our day’s salute of America.

The Committee requests donations be mailed to: Coronado 4th of July Committee, Attn: Donation, P.O. Box 180541, Coronado, CA, 92178-0541.

Your contribution will be used to provide us with a day of varied events and an opportunity to commemorate our liberties and independence. Please help us do that.
