InTouch CU Plano Balloon Festival Launches into 34th Year
Thursday, September 19, 2013 6:40 AM

The InTouch CU (ITCU) Plano Balloon Festival will launch into its 34th year at 4 p.m. tomorrow and the three-day festival will run through the evening of Sept. 22 at Oak Point Park in Plano, Texas. ITCU has become synonymous with the festival since becoming their title sponsor seven years ago, making InTouch the balloon fest’s longest running title sponsor.

The Plano Balloon Festival Inc. is a nonprofit organization that educates event attendees on hot air ballooning, which also benefits other local nonprofit organizations in the community by offering them an opportunity to showcase their agency. Of the numerous nonprofits involved in the ITCU Plano Balloon Fest each year, ITCU selects three groups to receive a generous donation to further their programs and services for the community. This year, to celebrate its seven-year partnership with the festival, ITCU has increased the donation to these three selected organizations to $777.77 each.

Additionally, ITCU will host a drawing, open to the public during the festival (ages 18 and over) for three MasterCard® gift cards; two in the amount of $250 and one lucky winner will receive one for $500. These three gift card winners will then have the opportunity to select their favorite from the dozens of nonprofits at the event and their gift card amount will be matched as a donation from ITCU to their selected charity.

 “We are thrilled to celebrate seven years of partnering with The Plano Balloon Festival. We are very proud of our involvement with an event that has entertained hundreds of thousands of visitors over that time and at the same time, provided funding for non-profit organizations in our community,” said Diane Gerstner, Executive Vice President of InTouch Credit Union.

Attendees will be invited to share their photos of their ITCU Plano Balloon Festival visit on social media by tagging @InTouchCreditU on Instagram or Twitter and by utilizing the hashtag #PlanoBalloon.
