Sponsors step up to provide funds for Cleveland July 4th fireworks

The show will go on! After some concern that funding would not come through in time for Cleveland’s Fourth of July fireworks show, organized each year by the City of Cleveland and the Unity Committee of Cleveland, two major sponsors have come forward – Emergency Hospital Systems, LLC, and McKinley Homebuilders.

Emergency Hospital Systems, LLC, is the owner of Cleveland Emergency Hospital, 1017 S. Travis St., and Texas Emergency Hospital, 300 E. Crockett St., both in Cleveland.

McKinley Homebuilders is part of McKinley Development, which developed the Grand Oaks Reserve master-planned community in Cleveland. The neighborhood also includes the Nine Grand Golf Course that features three separate courses.

The two businesses – Emergency Hospital Systems, LLC, and McKinley Homebuilders – are Star-Spangled Sponsors and helped the Unity Committee reach its June 3 fundraising deadline. Other sponsors include Health Center of Southeast Texas, Cleveland Lions Club, Prosperity Bank, Bill and Jean McAdams, Vulcan Materials, HR Green, Walmart, Entergy, Arthur J. Gallagher and Co., Wendell Kelly Construction Co., Kendall Homes and Cleveland Economic Development Corporation.

The Cleveland Fourth fireworks show is handled by Celestial Displays, LLC., of Spring, Texas. The fireworks show is said to rival those offered in larger neighboring cities.

Free to the public, the fireworks show will be held on July 4 just after dusk. The fireworks show is synchronized to patriotic songs perfect for celebrating the birth of the nation. The shows are held every year behind the Cleveland High School football stadium, with the exception of last year due to construction at the stadium. Seating for the show will be available on the home side of the stadium. The visitors’ side will be closed for seating because of its proximity to the pyrotechnics.

The Unity Committee of Cleveland, which organizes the Treat Street, Bunny Blast, Hometown Christmas and the Fourth Fireworks show every year, is always in need of sponsors. The all-volunteer organization is managed through the City of Cleveland, so donations may be made to the City of Cleveland and earmarked for Unity Committee events.
