Woodbine Municipal (KOBI), New Jersey: Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey Blimp to Visit Airport

WOODBINE - Mayor William Pikolycky is pleased to announce the Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey (Horizon BCBSNJ) Blimp will be visiting the Woodbine Municipal Airport during its summer 2012 Follow Us tour. 

 The Horizon blimp is flying throughout New Jersey from May 24 through September 12 and will dock at Woodbine during its visits to Southern New Jersey.

On its Follow Us Tour, the airship invites onlookers to tag along as it visits the state’s beaches, stadiums, health fairs, festivals and landmarks.

The Follow Us Blimp Tour will showcase Horizon BCBSNJ’s community outreach initiatives. It is in these neighborhoods where Horizon BCBSNJ can be found conducting health screenings at local schools; encouraging baseball fans to walk their way to better health; helping seniors get the most from their benefits with the “Blue to you” van; and opening a new retail center to interact with individuals one-on-one.

While the blimp is in the air, you can go online or use your smartphone to get more information on its travels by liking Horizon BCBSNJ’s Facebook page, following Horizon BCBSNJ on Twitter, or “checking in” on Foursquare.

This year’s blimp tour is also supporting more than 50 New Jersey-based charitable organizations. Blimp rides are donated to non-profits and auctioned off as a way to raise funds. Last year, Horizon BCBSNJ donated 50 blimp rides that raised nearly $45,000 for New Jersey charities.

“We are glad to host the Blimp at our airport once again, and encourage everyone to come out and see,” added Mayor Pikolycky.
