2013 Great Midwest Balloon Fest

Purchase tickets here!

Sunflower House is participating in the 2013 Charity Challenge Hot Air Balloon Race on August 9, 2013.  This new, featured event of the 2013 Great Midwest Balloon Fest will be a “Hare and Hound” race.  The sponsor balloon (“Hare” balloon”) will inflate on the balloon field and then fly away to lay down targets.  Then the other 35 balloons, representing 35 area charities, are the “Hound” balloons will then inflate, fly and chase the “Hare.”

Pilots of the “Hare” balloons will throw down bean bags as close to the targets as possible.  The three balloons that come the closest to hitting the bull’s eye will be the winners.  There will be a random drawing prior to the race where a representative of each charity will draw to determine which balloon will represent their organization.

The Grand Prize is a $10,000 donation to the winning charity; second prize is $3500; third prize is $1500.  Winners will be presented their checks at the conclusion of the race on Friday, August 9th.

Sunflower House has the opportunity to sell single day, adult tickets and receive part of the proceeds from the tickets we sell.  To purchase these tickets for $10 each  please click here!  Tickets will be mailed to the shipping address unless otherwise specified.
