Thanks to our donors who make it possible to keep this PVE tradition alive.

This event can only continue if people like you donate. The all-volunteer committee donates their time and money to put together this celebration. We are grateful for loyal patrons who give year after year, but often we operate at a deficit as we have for the past several years. So if you count yourself as one who has enjoyed this event in the past or plans to in the future, please consider a donation this year. Your name will be recognized in our program and is tax deductible. Help us keep this special local tradition going strong.

Patriotically yours,

The Palos Verdes Independence Day Celebration Committee
