Friends of Big Ivy Fireworks

As many of you know, the Fourth of July celebration at the Big Ivy Community Center has been a tradition in this area for many years. We have a parade, swimming, music, and food. The highlight of the event is our fireworks display which has been called one of the best in the area. The cost of the fireworks is $4,700. Admission is not charged to come to the fireworks. However, we have always asked for donations to sustain this event. As with most non-profit organizations in this rough economy, we have to ask for more help from our community to continue our services and activities. Some of our club members have formed a group called the "Friends of Big Ivy Fireworks". They are asking for donations from individuals, families, and businesses for the annual 4th of July fireworks show.

Donations are tax deductible and all money will be used only for the fireworks. Please contact us for more information on how to make your donation. Thank You!

About BICC

The Big Ivy Community Club was founded in 1973 by a group of Big Ivy residents who wished to pursue greater opportunities and benefits for their neighbors and friends. Operating on land that was previously a Civilian Conservation Corp camp and later an FFA camp, the BICC organized a community organization dedicated to the improvement of the lives of Big Ivy residents. A 501©3 non-profit, the BICC operates on a budget of just under $100,000 and is responsible for the management and maintenance of 24+ acres and all its facilities. Your financial assistance is 100% directed to service the community you call home.
