4th of July Fireworks
For over twenty years, The Fund has been sponsoring Fourth of July fireworks, currently held on the grounds of Radnor High School. This event is consistently the largest fund-raising activity for The Fund and requires upwards of 150 volunteers to make it a success.
In addition to the breathtaking display of pyrotechnics, the event offers a wide assortment of refreshments, live entertainment and a variety of games for children. Surrounding businesses allow The Fund to use their parking lots to accommodate the large crowds which attend the fireworks.
The fireworks are not a Radnor Township-sponsored activity and The Fund receives no money from pubic sources to support the event. Both the Radnor School District and Radnor Police are reimbursed for their assistance. All the workers at the fireworks, as at all Fund events, are unpaid community volunteers.
Local businesses donate both money and goods to the fireworks; volunteers can be recognized by their colorful “T-Shirts” which are part of our fund-raising program.
Tickets for the event can be purchased both at the site and in advance (at a discount) at Bryn Mawr Trust Bank (Wayne Branch), Braxton’s Animal Works, D’Amicantonio Shoes, Dayton Lock Company, the Radnor Township Building and Wayne Sporting Goods.
Breakfast with Santa
Every year, early in December, Santa Claus arrives in Radnor on a Saturday morning to thrill youngsters at a Breakfast With Santa sponsored by The Fund. Not only can children speak with Santa and have their pictures taken, but also, the kids and their parents will have a delicious pancake breakfast.
In addition, children can enter their creations in a “Gingerbread House” contest with prizes awarded for a wide variety of creative accomplishments. Face painters and balloon artists are also present to entertain children of all ages. Cookie decorating (and eating) is also a popular activity for the youngsters.
