Because of You

Every July, the Mount Carmel Foundation recognizes their incredible donors with an appreciation party in conjunction with Columbus' Red, White & BOOM! fireworks spectacular. 1,600 friends and family join together for a delicious picnic-style meal and fun activities to recognize America's independence, those who selflessly serve and the 100,000 lives touched over the past year because of your donations.

While enjoying a beautiful view of downtown Columbus, families and friends dance to upbeat music, bounce in inflatables, and take part in friendly competitions with unique games. The summer night is truly perfect for all ages and brings out the inner child in us all.

"Everything is so well done. The staff and volunteers, welcoming and helpful, the activities and music joy-filled, the food and drink leave no one wanting and the beautiful creative touches are so thoughtful," Mary McNamara, Mount Carmel Foundation donor.

At the end of the night, guests sit back and enjoy the best view in town of the fireworks.


Guests have a large patriotic area full of festivities leading up to the firework display.


Roughly 1,600 people enjoy a filling meal, ice cream, crafts and activities for every age.
