New in 2014
Upcycle Electronics Program
Our new Upcycle Electronics Program turns retired electronics, otherwise known as electronic waste (e-Waste), into charitable giving that will be applied to your Time to Fly fundraising goal! E-Waste is a global epidemic and contains cancer causing toxins that are polluting the environment and our health. By collecting and Upcycling retired cellphones, laptops, tablets and other mobile devices, we will help eliminate e-Waste while creating funds to support Children’s Cancer Research Fund.
Help reach your fundraising goals by asking your friends, family and colleagues to donate their smartphones, laptops, iPads, iPods, MP3 players and more. It is as simple as asking them to print a free shipping label (available under the donate electronics link), enter your team or individual name and send it in via UPS. Items must be post marked by May 9, 2014 to be included in totals for event day recognition.
Join strolling magician Brian Richards as he amazes you with his magic and balloon creations and delights you with his comedy.

Enjoy the magic, delight in laughs and have some magical FUN!
