The Sept. 7 gathering attracted more than 3,000 people and was held to benefit the Forsyth County Parks Foundation, said Executive Administrative Assistant Dawn Wood.

Many who attended the fundraiser purchased $15 tickets for a tethered balloon ride, Wood said, adding that money raised will be used to send underprivileged children to summer camp.
