Donate $10 for a chance to win a ride in a hot-air balloon or airplane

RENO – In an effort to expand fundraising efforts, The Great Reno Balloon Race now offers mobile giving through “Greater Giving,” a nonprofit program.

Greater Giving allows spectators to support their favorite nonprofit special event by texting the word “balloon” to 20222. For every $10 donation received, that person’s name will be entered into a drawing to win a hot-air balloon ride during the event. Donors will also have the chance to win a T-6 airplane ride during a “Missing Man” flyover provided to the Balloon Race by the National Championship Air Races. Text donations can be made any time during July, August and September, are tax-deductible and will be charged through the donors’ mobile carrier.

One-time or recurring donations may also be made at http://www.renoballoon.com any month of the year. For more information, visit http://www.renoballoon.com or call (775) 826-1181.
