Rehoboth Main Street Calls For Fireworks Donations

Dear Editor,

Plans are underway for the Rehoboth Beach Main Street Fireworks for Sunday evening July 4th. While we hope to have the most impressive show ever, thanks to our collaboration with the internationally known Zambelli Fireworks family, we must appeal to the community to help make the show possible.

Each year we raise 100% of the fireworks funds directly from the residents and merchants here in Rehoboth and the surrounding areas. It’s not surprising, given current financial conditions country-wide, that we are a little short of the needed funds this year. Our donors have been wonderfully loyal, but some of them are no longer in a position to be as generous as before. For that reason, we’re asking those of you who have never donated to this huge community event, or those who haven’t yet donated this year, to consider helping us out with the fireworks fund.

So far, hundreds of checks have been received but we are only three quarters of the way to our goal. While donations have been coming in at a steady pace, we find it necessary to appeal to the community to help us make sure we can fund a spectacular show for 2010.

If readers are in a position to help, we would appreciate donations in any amount to be sent to: Fireworks, Rehoboth Beach Main Street, PO Box 50, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971. All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

Once again, we will have shuttle busses running from Route One to help people get in and out of town, music at the bandstand and lots of action downtown to make this a spectacular night.

Please help us fund this truly community-based event. Whether you can give a little, a lot, or in-between, please help us have a great big blast this year!

Thank you. We look forward to a terrific event on Sunday, July 4th. For more information on the Fireworks, please call 302-227-2772 or see

Kathy McGuiness, chair
