MATT'S TWIN CREEKS FIREWORKS SHOW

MATT'S TWIN CREEKS FIREWORKS SHOW

What started out as a little fireworks show for family and friends has turned into a one of a kind neighborhood event where thousands now flock! “There is nothing quite like it!” says neighbor DeeAnn Todd about the show, “It rivals most major productions and is only a short walk to the soccer field.” Another neighbor observes, “We’re so lucky we get to have something like this in our community! It’s very special.”

What most people who attend don’t realize is that the show is put on entirely by one family—Matt and Jennifer Vranes. The cost is exorbitant (the insurance alone is $2,000!) but through donations, they are able to keep the show afloat. They actually tried one year to cancel, because it was just getting too expensive, but the neighbors refused to let that happen…and took it upon themselves to get donations collected! 

Every penny counts! Please help the Vranes family keep the show going! Here’s the link to donate:

Meet us at the big soccer field at Twin Creeks in Central Point on the 4th. Bring lawn chairs or blankets. There will be a DJ playing music starting around 8 pm. This is an event you won’t want to miss!
