Snowflake events are designed to be a day of fun for children of fallen military heroes, to get out and have a great time with other families, and for the children to have time to re-connect with each other throughout the year, after the annual Snowball Express. These events are spread out around the country to be in the families’ own backyards without extensive travel (usually within 2-3 hours driving to the event). Persons organizing a Snowflake will develop the program, determine the costs, raise funds for the entire event, build an agenda for the day, media outreach, and coordinating logistics. We will have our team of regional and local support to assist in successfully executing the Snowflake event. Snowball Express will offer the necessary paperwork for donors to deduct their donations through the SBE 501(c)(3). Once at the Snowflake event, there is no cost to the attending Snowball families. Also, there are usually no age restrictions for attending Snowflakes. Your group will be 100% responsible for raising the funds to cover the costs of the event.
