Balloon Manor Reappears in Rochester
Date:10/9/2008

Airigamist Larry Moss and team create world-renowned haunted house to benefit Teens Living with Cancer

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Led by internationally-renowned "airigamist" Larry Moss, a team of 65 balloon artists from all over the world and hundreds of community volunteers will begin building the fourth Balloon Manor on Saturday, October 11 at The Mall at Greece Ridge (271 Greece Ridge Center Drive) in Rochester, NY. Please visit http://www.balloonmanor.com for tickets and more information.

Starting with weaving 10-foot-high walls, the team will create a 10,000-square-foot haunted house and all its sc-airy occupants from 100,000 balloons in just under a week. SCARE U: Ghoul School -- a frightfully funny monster college featuring classes in Anti-Social Studies, Under-World History, Inhumanities and more -- will open to the public on Friday, October 17 at 3 p.m. It will run through Sunday, October 26, closing Monday and Tuesday, October 20 and 21 for balloon repairs.

The previous three Manors combined donated more than $80,000 to Rochester health charities including Wilmot Cancer Center, Golisano Children's Hospital and Teens Living with Cancer (TLC). This year, the Manor is partnering exclusively with TLC to benefit the organization by raising both funds and awareness.

"We feel a strong bond with the project," says TLC founder, Lauren Spiker, referring to Moss and his wife Judy's fight with cancer that inspired the Manor fundraiser. Lauren's late daughter, Melissa, was the inspiration for TLC, which focuses on supporting cancer-stricken teens and their families.

More than 20,000 people have toured the previous three Manors, including 2007's Elastic Park: the World's First-Ever Balloon Scream Park, and many millions more have seen or heard about it through international media coverage.

A NYC native who makes his home in Rochester, Larry Moss holds the Guinness World's Record for the largest non-round balloon sculpture (Belgium, 2000), and created the world's first piloted balloon sculpture, The Flying Octopus, in 2003. He has performed, constructed and taught his unusual art in 12 countries, and is the author of several books on the subject of balloon art (http://www.airigami.com ).
