All 27 Balloon Pilots and especially Bill Lee who coordinates all of the pilots behind the scene every year. One of the most touching and wonderful things that happened this year, is the generosity of the balloon pilots. They passed a baseball cap around at the pilots briefing every morning, to donate to victims of the fires that raged in our area for months on end and caused much devastation to many of our residents and businesses.
These extremely generous amazing pilots and crew members donated $1750 into that baseball cap! The money will be turned over to the Moreno Valley Ministerial Alliance to dispense to families who have signed up for help. A special heart felt thank you to all of the pilots. We are so happy to host them and look forward to their return next year!
Thank you to all of our sponsors and all of the volunteers who help with all phases of the event.
We appreciate you!
