Letter to the Editor: Fireworks



Dear Business Owners and Island Residents,

As a community, we are moving forward with plans for the 2015 Independence Day Celebration on Marco Island to take place on Saturday, July 4, 2015.

The purpose of this letter is to ask for your help in sustaining the level and quality of this year’s fireworks display, which is such an important part of our American cultural tradition.

The Marco Island City Council contributes $21,000 in funding (one half of the total cost) for this very important community event.  The remainder of the funds must be raised from business and resident donations.  I am asking you to contribute.

We are well on our way, but still short of the needed amount of $21,000.  Donations of any amount are appreciated!  Any contribution



will recognize you or your organization as a partner in this effort.

If your donation is $3,000 or more, we will make arrangements for you to present your check directly to City Council with media present.

Please make contributions payable to the MARCO ISLAND FIREWORKS FUND, and send to the Marco Island Area Chamber of Commerce, Fireworks Fund, 1102 North Collier Blvd., Marco Island, FL 34145.

Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of our request. We appreciate your continued support of our community.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can assist you in any way.  I am available by telephone at (239) 394-7549 and via email at

We look forward to another great fireworks display this July 4th on Marco Island!
