Best Fireworks Show Ever!

Over the years we have donated a large amount annually to the 4th of July Commission. It all started about 15 years ago, when I walked to College Park High School to watch the fireworks. Before sitting down they went off and were over far too quickly. The next day I approached Don about fund-raising for the fireworks. We decided then to become major donors and have done so for years.  

This year we offered to increase our donation from $2000 to an additional $5000 in the form of matching other donations. We can increase the drama and length of the fireworks by up to 50% if we get donations totaling $5000 because matching funds would bring the total up to $10,000! 

If you are a school teacher, we suggest asking students to donate as a class with pennies, nickels, or whatever they want so they can be a part of the 4th of July celebration. Teaching why we do fireworks on the 4th of July would be a learning experience. We get tons of visitors and want to make it especially grand for all.

We are proud to be American, proud of our country, proud of its heritage, and proud to be residents of the wonderful town of Pleasant Hill.

Please send donations to: Pleasant Hill 4th of July Commission, PO Box 23272, Pleasant Hill, CA 94523. Make checks payable to 4th of July Commission.
