This year, Red, White and Boom is already taking off with flying colors. One thing we have done is completely revamp the sponsorship packages to give our sponsors more of a VIP experience and enable them to bring more of their friends, family and co-workers with them to the special event. Our goal is to make this year bigger and better than last year and we are well on our way.

A great many "thanks" go to the members of the committee and the community who have so generously volunteered their time, money and resources to make this a wonderful event. Some things you will see this year are a VIP cookout at the Ahwatukee Swim and Tennis Center, a hospitality center, an area for retail space, fantastic food vendors, local bands, and a children's area with things to entertain the young ones.

We will still keep it a free event with the same hometown feel. We still have some opportunities if anyone is interested in being a sponsor, and we always appreciate all donations.

Lastly, the Red, White and Boom Community Fireworks Celebration is part of the new Ahwatukee Foothills Chamber of Commerce Community Foundation - a 501(c)3 where your contributions can be tax deductible! Please call the Ahwatukee Foothills Chamber of Commerce at (480) 753-7676, or visit the website at with any questions or donations.
