Balloon Fiesta Fundraising Opportunities

posted Aug 27, 2019, 2:05 PM by Clinton Galloway

Journey clubbers/parents can work at the Balloon Fiesta (ticket sales and scanners).  The Kiwanis Club of Albuquerque has the responsibility for ticket sales and scanners at the fiesta.
Awana is a partner organization with Kiwanis, so we can sign up as volunteers (paid), its a really good fundraiser to help with camp, Summit, and our trip to Phoenix.

If you are interested, sign up at
We have a long time relationship with Kiwanis and the balloon fiesta, so please be sure you only sign up for which sifts you are able to work.  You can sign up for mornings or afternoons, they ask that we don't sign up for both, in the same day.
Signing up at the website is simple and very straightforward.
