BENEFITING: Wish of a Lifetime
Karen L., 67, currently resides in Indianapolis, IN. Karen has always had an admiration for Hot Air Balloons. The first time she ever saw one was in her hometown in her 20's. Ever since she saw the balloon set off in to the sunrise, her passion for anything related to Hot Air Balloons began. Karen is afraid of heights; but she mustered up the courage to ride in her first balloon in her 30's. Karen has dreamed of the day she would be able to see the Albuquerque New Mexico Balloon Fiesta Character Rodeo. Karen has done numerous things to give back to the community over the years, but is most proud of the small charity she has created called “Kinder Cane” which gives out canes to those in need. Wish of a Lifetime plans on making Karen’s wish a reality by sending Karen and her daughter, Amy, to Albuquerque, New Mexico for a couple of days so she will be able to attend the annual Balloon Fiesta.
