Iowa Great Lakes Area Chamber seeks donations for Fireworks Fund 

The 4th of July Fireworks display over West Okoboji is a tradition in the Iowa Great Lakes.

Kara Matheson, Events Coordinator with the Iowa Great Lakes Chamber of Commerce says the Chamber depends upon donations for the annual display.  "Not a lot of people may know this but, the Iowa Great Lakes Area Chamber is actually the one who fundraises for those, but we would not be able to do it without the generous contributions and support from everyone in the community and local businesses, and so, we are once again asking for everyone's help, and any kind of donation big or small toward this Fireworks Fund.  We're really excited to be able to fill up the barge this year, so the display is actually going to be bigger and better than ever, which is so very exciting."

She notes that donations may be made in several ways.  "Hop online to okobojichamber.com  You can send us a check in the mail, write it out to Fireworks Fund.  Otherwise, you can stop in and see us.  We are in our brand new offices right down here in the Park."

The 4th of July Fireworks will begin at dusk on Wednesday evening, accompanied by the patriotic music on KUOO.
