The Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association is working with Glenwood Springs City Council to engage the business community and residents of Glenwood Springs to raise money for the 2011 Fourth of July fireworks display.

The cost of a fireworks show is about $18,000.

“We’ve received two $500 donations,” said Angie Anderson, spokeswoman for the chamber.

She encouraged residents and businesses to step forward with contributions large and small.

Contributions can be made by writing a check to the City of Glenwood Springs Fireworks account and sending it to Mike Harman, City Finance Director, 101 W. Eighth St., Glenwood Springs, CO 81601.
