Longview groups needs contributions for 4th of July celebrations

Posted: Updated:

LONGVIEW, TEXAS (KYTX) Longview's 4th of July celebration needs sponsors to make sure it goes off without a hitch. The club, Ambucs Too, puts on the event each July but they rely on donations from the public. This year, donations are way down.

The club needs to raise at least $50,000 for the fireworks show as well as supplying Amtryks. The special bikes are made by Ambucs and will be used for veterans to ride in a parade before the fireworks show.

"To me it's real important for Longview to continue that celebration and to honor our vets in every military aspect out there," says Carmela Davis with Ambucs Too.

If enough donations come in, the event will start at 7 at the Longview fairgrounds with a patriotic ceremony followed by the veterans ride at 8. The fireworks show will begin at 9:15.

To find out how you can help sponsor the event, you can contact Carmela Davis, CPA at 903 753-3329.
