Q: How to make a contribution?
A: The 64th annual fireworks display is shot by the volunteers of the Shorewood Hills Fire Department Association in conjunction with the Village of Shorewood Hills and the Blackhawk Country Club. A great deal of volunteer time and effort goes into this event, but there are significant costs associated with the purchase of the fireworks and security for the golf course.
This year's display will cost about $9,000 for the fireworks alone. Each year the Fire Department Association attempts to cover as much of this cost as possible through donations to the fireworks fund. We do this by soliciting contributions from those in attendance at the display and by asking Village residents to consider making a contribution to the fund. Last year we were able to cover about half of the cost of the show through contributions!
You can sponsor a shell or shells by making a donation of $25 or more prior to the show. This qualifies you as a "Fireworks Fan-atic" and we will send you to a copy of the fireworks "program" (a sequenced list of the fireworks show that we use ourselves) with the particular shell or shells highlighted that will be "your" part of the program. Some of the shells you could sponsor include:
$25 - set of two 4" shells like 'Lemon Strobes' or 'Blue Willow to
Glittering Silver with Thunder'
can be made any time to: SHFD Fireworks Fund, 810 Shorewood
