We are excited to announce the 17th annual GRBR ‘Fore the Kids’ Charity Golf Tournament will be taking place on Friday, May 12, 2023 at Plumas Pines Golf Resort!
This event helps raise funds for The Great Reno Balloon Race’s Tissue Paper Hot Air Balloon Launch partnership with Washoe County School District. We hope to bring even more students out to Rancho San Rafael in 2023 to learn about lighter-than-air flight!
