As you may have heard, the lack of sponsoring organizations canceled the Pittsburg July 4 celebration and fireworks show. The Pittsburg-Camp County Chamber board members recently voted to serve as the sponsoring organization, understanding the importance of our July 4 celebration for our entire community. The fireworks display has been celebrated and enjoyed by thousands of Pittsburg and Camp County residents, as well as by visitors from surrounding communities, for the past 35+ years. It’s an evening enjoyed by children of all ages – from preschool age children to teens, to parents and grandparents.
The Pittsburg-Camp County Chamber of Commerce is committed to carrying on this beautiful, family-friendly tradition but we cannot do so without your help! A minimum of $15,000 is needed to fund our July 4 Celebration, just six short weeks away. Here’s how you can help:
Sponsorship – If your business would like to sponsor the event, please contact me for a sponsorship packet. If your company has not yet committed to sponsoring the celebration, we encourage you to do so.
Make a personal donation – If your family loves our annual Independence Day Blast, you can help to ensure that this family-friendly tradition continues by making a personal gift. Donation drop off locations is at the Chamber Office, Wallace Law Firm, and Pilgrim Bank. You can also donate online via Facebook. If you are on Facebook, please make a personal donation and then share the “Go Fund Me” campaign on your page – Save Pittsburg’s, Fireworks Show.
Sell Parachute Bingo Tickets – We have once again secured the skydivers who will jump at dusk onto our giant bingo card. Tickets are available for $5 each. Please let me know if your place of business would be willing to sell tickets.
Volunteer – As you can imagine, a July 4th Celebration requires volunteers on the day of the event. If you would like to volunteer, please contact me.
Thank you again for supporting the 2018 Pittsburg-Camp County Independence Day Blast. If you should have any questions, please call the Chamber at 903-856-3442.
