RE/MAX Balloon to Appear at Shades Cahaba Elementary, Rides Benefit Children’s of Alabama

BIRMINGHAM - The RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon is scheduled to appear at Shades Cahaba Elementary School on Sunday, May 7 from 5 - 7:30 p.m. The event has been organized by RE/MAX Metro South to help raise money and awareness for Children’s of Alabama.

At 70 feet tall, the RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon grabs attention wherever it flies. Weather permitting, tethered rides in the balloon will be offered as part of the fundraiser. Tickets for prize drawings will also be available for a donation. All proceeds from the rides and drawings will benefit Children’s as part of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH).

Children’s was among the first hospitals to join CMNH in 1983. Since then, more than $40 million has been donated to Children’s through CMNH. Every dollar raised locally through campaigns, events and partners goes directly to Children’s to provide the best care possible to ill and injured children from across the state and Southeast.

“We’re honored to help raise awareness and show support for such an incredible organization like Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,” said Frank Phillips, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Metro South. “As local business leaders we take pride in our community and together we can accomplish anything.”

As the largest hot air balloon fleet in the world, more than 108 RE/MAX balloons carry the distinctive red, white and blue logo in 26 countries on six continents. RE/MAX, LLC adopted the iconic logo as a promotional symbol in 1978 at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta.

Since its inception, RE/MAX Associates, offices and regions have sponsored and participated in hundreds of balloon events around the world including charity events, art festivals, grand-opening celebrations and even educational programs.
