Children's Miracle Network (CMN) and the QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning will join forces for the 23rd consecutive year to raise money and awareness for the prominent national charity. 
 
This special relationship between CMN and the festival will directly benefit such worthy organizations as the Children's Specialized Hospital and the network of hospitals that they support.
 

The QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning believes in doing well by doing good, and takes pride in working with a large number of local, regional and national non-profit, school, and religious based groups.

 
To date, over $2.6 million dollars in charitable contributions have been raised!
 
The Festival also has had an impact on the economy of the state of New Jersey as a whole, that is valued at
$42.7 million dollars.
