The Children’s Cabinet

    • 2021 marks the 28th anniversary of the partnership between The Children’s Cabinet and the Wilbur May Foundation. The Wilbur May Foundation has been bringing special shaped balloons to the event each year to give tethered rides for kids at The Children’s Cabinet. Thank you for bringing smiles to our event for over two decades!
    • The Great Reno Balloon Race is involved in several fundraising activities to help support The Children’s Cabinet. Poster sales and pre-event activities are just some of the ways we have showcased this amazing organization. Look for two special shape balloons giving tethered rides on the field each day with donations going back to The Children’s Cabinet!

Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada

    • 2013 marked the first year of the partnership between The Great Reno Balloon Race and the Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada.
    • Look for them on the Sunday of the event participating in scavenger hunts, recruitment and trading S.W.A.P.S with our pilots (otherwise known as Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere)!
