Colorado Charity Event Thrills Attendees with 140,000 Balloon Exhibit and Memorable Balloon Fashion Show

As a balloon artist, I am inspired by my fellow artists and the impact we’re having on such deserving charities.”

— Stacie Chase

NAPERVILLE, IL, USA, August 1, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Earthlings from the Greeley, Colorado area were recently treated to a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and thankfully, no alien abductions were reported.

Imagine a wonderland of all colors of a rainbow made entirely of over 140,000 balloons. The out-of-this-world, Big Balloon Build event featured 75 balloon artists from across the globe. These artists brought their balloon A-game and their giving hearts, as all proceeds benefited Life Stories Child & Family Advocacy. This charity gives a voice to abused or neglected children. To date, Big Balloon Build has raised more than $500,000 via this multinational effort to build goodwill through fantastical balloon art.

The event took 3,000 hours to turn, twist, imagine, and display balloons of all colors, shapes, and sizes into spaceships, aliens, dinosaurs, and more. The combination of the artists’ hard work and talent resulted in an amazing out-of-this-world display that delighted thousands of attendees.

Stacie Chase, owner of Funtime Services Event Rentals, taking part in her 3rd balloon-building event, shared, “I was blown away by the creativity, the camaraderie, and the overwhelmingly positive reaction from the public to this unique event. As a balloon artist, I am inspired by my fellow artists and the impact we’re having on such deserving charities.”

Chase donated her time and talents as an accomplished balloon artist to embrace this mission, bringing joy and support to local families and children. Chase was selected from over 1000 applicants to participate in the Big Balloon Build Colorado.

The Big Balloon Build even captured the attention of local dignitaries. Greeley Police Chief Adam Turk, Melanie Woolman president of the United Way, and Rhonda Solis, Colorado State Board of Education Member for the 8th Congressional District, all took part in a memorable fashion show modeling gravity-defying balloon outfits that thrilled the attendees.

PremiereConwin, the country’s leading manufacturer of high-quality balloon inflators, donated all equipment, and Gemar, a leading manufacturer of 100% bio-based rubber balloons, donated all 140,000+ biodegradable balloons for the Big Balloon Build Colorado. (The company even traveled thousands of miles from Italy to experience the event.)

Once back in her native Chicagoland, The Big Balloon Build inspired Chase to show her balloon prowess and add more balloon-inspired installations to Funtime Services’ Event Rentals capabilities.

On Sunday, August 13th, from 12 to 5, Funtime Services debuts a “Pink Party.” This Barbie-inspired event lets families walk the pink carpet, strike a pose in front of a balloon extravaganza, get a selfie, a Giphy, and as many photos as needed to proclaim one’s “pinkness.” The Pink Party fun continues with glitter tattoos, craft activities, balloon animals, and surprise guests. Even better, the first 100 registered guests receive free cotton candy and watermelon slush drinks.
