Thank You! Our 2022 Fundraisers were a great success. Freedom Flight extends a huge thanks to everyone who supported us this year.

Because of you we sent an all-time record for our annual online fundraiser. So thank you!

Thank you to the many people, organizations, and businesses that supported our missions with donations for the online auction. Also a big THANK YOU for all those that helped us reach our monetary goal to be able to take all 4 of our balloons to the 50th anniversary of the Albuquerque International Balloon Rally starting October 1st. This fabulous rally lasts for 9 days and is the most photographed event in the world, hosting 650 Hot Air Balloons and over 1 million visitors. It would be a good place to meet us this fall.

Thanks to John Pearson who was the fundraising chair and spearheaded ticket sales.
