Event Recap

Give Kids the World

Even though the Give Kids The World Foundation was the recipient of the proceeds from the event, their staff jumped right in the action, even with no balloon experience behind them! You could find them inflating and heat sealing the stars, delivering balloon designs from the CBA exam back to the Village, and even bringing a semi trainer to haul pieces back to the Village after the event so they could share the joy with kids that could not be there!


Children with critical illnesses face countless appointments, treatments and hospital stays, and they are often told "no" due to the limitations of their illness. With support from partners like Pioneer Balloon Company, we are thrilled to be able to provide these children and their families with a magical week of "yes" where they can forget their worries, experience joy, and create unforgettable memories in a storybook oasis which attendees had the opportunity to get a glimpse of during Balloon Wonderland.

It was honestly one of the greatest work experiences of my life! People loved it and said it was one of the best events that we have ever done.
