The Black Balloon Bench

The Black Balloon Bench was a symbol of hope and remembrance for the Murray Family, celebrating the life of a son and brother who had succumbed to an opioid overdose.

Its symbolism grew even more poignant after it was washed away in a flood and needed to be rescued. Check out the Winter 2019-20 issue of The Response magazine to read about "The Journey of the Black Balloon Bench."
