Celebrate US! "Save Charlottesville's Fireworks"

Tax deductible

Charlottesville's Traditional 4th of July Fireworks Show are independently funded by local sponsorship's and donations. We are seeking your assistance at a time when we need this celebration of community more than ever.

CELEBRATE US! - Mr. Wendell Wood has donated his property on Carters Mountain as the launch point and Zambelli Fireworks is going to put on the show.  Your tax-deductible donation will help us cover the costs of the fireworks and net proceeds will benefit the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.    - “Our MISSION is to provide nourishing food to our neighbors in need through vibrant community partnerships and passionate public support.”

Due to COVID, the 4th of July Fireworks in Charlottesville cannot launch from the traditional spot at McIntire Park. Wendell Wood will host the 9:15 pm show visible in the southern sky toward Monticello Mountain and Carters Mountain. There will be no access to the owner’s property so the public is asked to view from their homes and/or cars for social distancing.

If we cannot raise enough to pull off the fireworks, we can leave the money with BRAFB or refund it to you. We thank you in advance for your donation and look forward to celebrating with you. Happy 4th! Bob Schotta
