It was a day they’ll never forget – Melanie Fox and her two children Coco and Cambry took a special hot air balloon flight at the Up & Away Hot Air Balloon and Music Festival in Washington Fields thanks to TDS Telecom.
TDS sponsored the memorial flight in honor of Fox’s late husband Mike, the head freshman football coach at Crimson Cliffs High school, who passed away due to a heart attack on Thanksgiving.
“It was such an honor to remember Coach Fox and all that he did for the Crimson football program, players, and students,” said Wendi Bulkley, TDS associate manager of Marketing. “We love being able to give back and support our community in this way.”
The Fox family went on the memorable journey and joined dozens of other balloons at the festival.
TDS was the title sponsor of the Up & Away Hot Air Balloon and Music Festival held in conjunction with Confetti Pebbles Balloons and the Washington Area Chamber of Commerce. The weekend events also included a car show, live entertainment, and balloon night glows held each night.
“Thank you, Coach Fox,” said Bulkley. “Thank you for encouraging all of us to soar to new heights, live our dreams, and bring honor to our family and community.”
