RE/MAX Balloon to Take to the Air for Charity

July 18, 2010

The RE/MAX hot air balloon is traveling to Naperville this week to help RE/MAX Professionals Select of Naperville raise money for Chicago’s Children’s Memorial Hospital.

The famous balloon will be at Frontier Park, 3380 Cedar Glade Drive, on Thursday, July 22 between 7 and 8:30 p.m.

Any agent affiliated with RE/MAX Professionals Select can take a tethered ride 30 feet in the air with a guest for a $50 contribution to the Children’s Miracle Network.

If all agents make an annual contribution of $50 or donate $5 for each transaction they close throughout the year, then Professionals Select will become a CMN Miracle Office.

“We thought this would be a wonderful and exciting way to make sure we reach that goal,” said event organizer Ellen Conte. β€œIt’s a unique opportunity, and I know many of our agents are looking forward to the experience and to the fun of taking a client or family member or business associate along for the ride.”

Last year, RE/MAX Northern Illinois raised more than $120,000 for CMN; 100 percent went to Children’s Memorial Hospital.
