We are keeping the details of the event a surprise until we are closer to the planned date, said Jackie Shea, of Element Mobile. What I can say is that when there once was color in the sky there will now be color in the streets of Wisconsin Rapids.
Wisconsin Rapids, WI (PRWEB) April 26, 2012
Element Mobile and Children’s Miracle Network are teaming up to create an exciting event to replace the Wisconsin Rapids Balloon Rally.
The Wisconsin Rapids Balloon Rally was an 11-year tradition that brought the city of Wisconsin Rapids and surrounding communities together to help raise funds for local sick and injured children through Children’s Miracle Network. The event was recently discontinued.
The Balloon Rally was created in 2001 by the late John Symonds and was held at Alexander Field. Thanks to an incredible team of volunteers, the Wisconsin Rapids Balloon Rally & Music Festival continued until 2011, which had a record attendance of over 11,000 people. In 11 years the event raised a net total of $181,000 for Children’s Miracle Network.
Jackie Shea, public relations manager for Element Mobile, said the company recognized how important the rally was for the community and Children’s Miracle Network and was happy to be part of a part of creating a new event.
“We are keeping the details of the event a surprise until we are closer to the planned date,” Shea said. “What I can say is that when there once was color in the sky there will now be color in the streets of Wisconsin Rapids.”
The event is tentatively scheduled for August 25th at the Grand Rapids Lions Club. More information on the details of the event will be released at a later date.
“We are sad to see the balloon rally tradition come to an end but we are very excited to reveal the new event,” Patti Shafto-Carlson, director of development for Children’s Miracle Network said. “I won’t give away too much information but there will be no shortage of colorful fun at this event.”
