NB’s Dave Brenion was in Las Vegas last week contributing his talents to a charity balloon bikini build and calendar shoot.
The event was organized by longtime friend of Nifty Balloons Tawney Bubbles in order to help benefit Cure 4 the Kids, a charity that raises money to provide medical care for children in need. According to Bubbles – who was both one of the people that built bikinis and one of the people that modeled them – the goal of Cure 4 the Kids is to ensure that ”no child is denied treatment for financial reasons.”
In addition to balloon artists from Los Angeles and Las Vegas, twisters came in all the way from Arizona, Milwaukee, New York, Canada, and Australia to help create these one-of- a-kind pieces. The wearable art was fitted on to a member of the assembled team of professional models who posed for pictures and played around Tawney’s pool and studio throughout the day.
