|Donate Toward July 4, 2013, Fireworks Display
a Bang for your Buck! Make a donation toward the Village of Roselle
July 4, 2013, fireworks display. This fundraising campaign gives the
community the chance to help bring the July 4 fireworks tradition back
Visit the Village of Roselle E-Pay page to make a donation online via credit card (convenience charges will apply), or download a donation coupon
to be returned with your payment. Donations will be accepted by mail
(Village of Roselle, 31 S. Prospect St., Roselle IL 60172) in the
payment drop box in the circle drive in front of Village Hall, or in
person at the Finance counter at Village Hall.
Due to budget reductions, The July 4 fireworks display has not been in
the Village's budget for the past three years. The tradition continued
with generous sponsorships from community groups in 2010 and 2011.
Without a sponsor for 2012, the display was canceled.
Donation Campaign Goals
Two donation campaign goals have been established for the July 4, 2013, fireworks display:
- $15,000 by March 15 (to secure a vendor)
$25,000 by June 26 (for final fireworks contract)
In the event that the $15,000 fundraising goal established for March 15, 2013, is not met, the fireworks display will be canceled and the funds will be used towards a 2014 Fireworks Donation Campaign. If subsequent fundraising goals are not met for a 2014 fireworks campaign, the display will be canceled and collected funds will be used to form a Special Events Commission charged with planning special events in Roselle, including but not limited to, National Night Out Against Crime.
In the event that the 2013 Fireworks Donation Campaign exceeds the stated $25,000 goal, 10 percent of the overage will be retained towards a 2014 Fireworks Donation Campaign. The remainder of the overage will be used to form a Special Events Commission charged with planning special events in Roselle, including but not limited to, National Night Out Against Crime.
