‘Keep It Sparkling’ event to raise money for Batavia fireworks show

Event will be held at K. Hollis Jewelers in Batavia

BATAVIA – From 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. today, the Batavia Fireworks Committee will host the second annual "Keep It Sparkling" event at K. Hollis Jewelers, 147 S. Randall Road, Batavia, to raise funds for the Fourth of July Sky Concert in Batavia.

Activities will include a silent auction, raffle prizes, including a front-row parking pass for the Fourth of July Sky Concert, food and beverages from local stores, restaurants and caterers, live music, and a Batavia trivia contest.

A percentage of everything sold at the store during the event will be given back to the Fireworks Committee by K. Hollis Jewelers owners Karen and Rob Hollis

There is a $20 entry fee if paid online via PayPal, or the cost is $25 at the door.

The Fourth of July Sky Concert annually attracts between 10,000 and 15,000 people. The show is funded solely through private donations – no taxpayer dollars are used.

Donations may be made at the Batavia Access Fireworks Committee's website, www.bataviafireworks.org. So far, the committee has raised more than $18,000, and the fireworks are 37 percent funded, according to its website.
