Florida WineFest & Auction Hosts Balloon Glow Dinner with Chef Mattison, February 24, at Herschberger Ranch.

Sarasota’s Seasonal Fundraiser for local Charities for Children - $7.5 Million Awarded

In France, the Montgolfier brothers filled a silk bag with hot air from a fire, and in 1783 sent several farm animals aloft in a basket beneath the balloon.

They probably did this so everyone who attends the Balloon Glow Dinner would recognize humans, and critters, love to fly, sip wine, and nibble.

Register early for the Balloon Glow Dinner under tents at a private ranch Friday, February 24, 2012, at 5:30 PM. Tickets $150.00 per person, benefit disadvantaged children. Watch the spectacular show of hot air balloons glow against the sky.
