“Giving Back” in 2023 and beyond…

The New Jersey Lottery Festival of Ballooning takes pride in our support of larger, purpose-driven, charitable organizations like Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Children’s Miracle Network and Alzheimer’s New Jersey.   We are also just as enthusiastic to engage with hundreds of local groups,  from high school marching bands and local food pantries to volunteer fire departments and community theater, who have come to count on our support over the years.

Remember…we all live here too.

To date, the Festival has raised over $3,500,000 (and counting…) for worthwhile local causes!
