Ahwatukee Little League donates check for fireworks

Red, White and Boom chairman Jeff Schenk recently accepted a $500 donation from Ahwatukee Little League. This is the second year Ahwatukee Little League has helped the community support the fireworks.

 

Eye Priority hosting fundraiser to benefit Red, White & Boom

If you are due for an eye exam, schedule it in June at Eye Priority and help support the fireworks celebration while taking care of your eye health.

During the month of June, a portion of Eye Priority’s proceeds from each Optomap digital imaging scan will be donated to the fireworks fund. The quick and painless procedure usually enables patients to avoid dilation drops and provides a clear digital image of the back of the eye.

Eye Priority is at 15725 S. 46th St., Suite 112. To make an appointment, call (480) 893-2300.

 

 

Commemorative “Boomer Bear” offered to benefit the fireworks

The Ahwatukee Foothills Chamber of Commerce is in the process of raising money for the 2010 Red, White & Boom Community Fireworks Celebration and is offering commemorative Boomer Bears for just $15 each. Each plush bear stands 13 inches high and has a paw stamped with “2010.” The bears are made by Toy Town in Ahwatukee Foothills. 

To purchase bears or donate to the Ahwatukee Red, White & Boom Fireworks, visit www.ahwatukeechamber.com.
