Each year, Charlottesville’s Fourth of July fireworks are made possible by generous donations from the community. Every donation goes to the fireworks celebration, with all surplus funds benefitting the Charlottesville-Albemarle Rescue Squad (CARS). Donate online now! Carter Mountain will donate a portion of proceeds from this event to CARS.
