Kulesz's memory of seeing RE/MAX providing a charity balloon ride in other parts of the country prompted Picard to call Debbie Colangelo, owner of RE/MAX Colonial in Littleton.
Picard happened to call Colangelo
a few days before the event, and Colangelo
, who immediately contacted RE/MAX New England balloonist Chris Mooney, found out there was room for one more balloon.
said this was the first time her
company was involved in coordinating a balloon ride, though RE/MAX New England routinely offers rides at regional events, including those at schools.
