To encourage donations by businesses and individuals, P5 is donating a 150 custom-designed “Rock the 4th 2012” T-shirts.
Proceeds of sales of this limited edition, commemorative T-shirt will go directly to fund the annual Independence Day fireworks display in Fernandina Beach.
The Amelia Island-Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber and the Historic Fernandina Business Association are leading efforts by local businesses to raise needed funds for the fireworks.
“We hope this special T-shirt offer will help stimulate and create some enthusiasm and civic pride while helping to accomplish the goal of raising $13,800 so we can have fireworks on July 4th,” said Loren Lum, co-owner of P5 Productions, an apparel and product imprinting company based in Fernandina Beach.
Minimum donation to receive a “Rock the 4th 2012” T-shirt (while supplies last) is $25.00. Donations must be received by Friday, June 22.
The unisex shirts are 100% cotton, pre-shrunk in deep royal blue and will come in sizes Youth Small, Medium and Large, and Adult Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large and 2X. The shirts feature the words “We the People” in the exact style of the U.S. Constitution followed by “of Fernandina Beach” and “Rock the 4th 2012.” There also will be an image of the U.S. flag rippling in a heart-shape.
Shirts will be available for pick-up by June 20, but Chamber President Regina Duncan is urging locals to be sure to purchase the shirts now since the deadline to raise funds for the fireworks is June 22, 2012.
“We need to have the funds in hand by June 22 to ensure we will be able to continue the Fernandina tradition of celebrating our nation’s birthday with fireworks over the Amelia River,” Duncan said.
