We had a WONDERFUL time at Red Balloon 2011 at Touro University! Thanks to everyone who volunteered, performed and attended our show. It was such a wonderful and beautiful event and we’re so honored to share it with you!
Jamison is a 3yo from Vallejo, CA diagnosed with aplastic anemia. He is currently responding well to immunosuppressive therapy but his family knows that at any time, he may need a life saving bone marrow transplant
Amit Gupta is a 32yo Bay Area entrepreneur recently diagnosed with leukemia and needs a bone marrow transplant to save his life. He and his friends have launched a massive social media campaign to raise awareness about minority representation in the bone marrow registry.
Red Balloon 2011 is proud to host the Asian American Donor Program and their patient drives for Jaimson and Amit. With staff on hand, we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have about the process and help you register to be in the drive.
Need some community service hours? You should donate some of your talent with Red Balloon 2011! We have numerous volunteer opportunities and we could use all the help possible.
Decorations: We have 200 red balloons, garland, white xmas lights and fun machines to set up and create a red balloon wonderland. Our color scheme is red, silver and gold and our goal is to create a warm and welcoming environment for our audience. I want people to walk into the auditorium and go “OMG”. We’ll be decorating the auditorium from 10am-2pm so stop by!
Lobby: Our lobby will be setup with fun zones (mainly to excite the child within all of us). There will be an arts&crafts table so people can make get well cards for the kids at the hospital. A backdrop will also be set up so people can take silly pictures. We’ll need at least 2 people making sure the lobby area doesn’t get too congested
Admissions: Tickets, tickets, tickets. We need 4 people at the table. Most people will buy tickets at the door and some will bring their eventbrite printouts. Each audience member will receive a red wristband, a program and their awesome red balloon bubbles.
AADP: We’re giving all of our audience members a chance to become bone marrow donors. AADP will be there to answer questions, help you fill out applications and cheek swaps. This will be a patient drive for Jaimson, a three year old from Vallejo, CA. and Amit from Palo Alto, CA. For more questions about this opportunity, please email email@example.com
Green Room: essentially the backstage area for our performers. We just need to make sure no unauthorized people are there!
Clean up: Self explanatory. We need to be out of the auditorium by 10pm so meet&greet needs to be over by 9:30pm!!
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information! 8 more days!!
