Metro area residents hit the town in bubble wrap designs all in the name of helping children.

The second annual “Bubble Ball” is held to raise money and awareness for Child Serve.

The organization helps children with special health care needs across Iowa.

A bubble wrap runway show featured designs from more than 70 local artists, all creating fashion out of bubble wrap.

Businesses from around Des Moines could also design their own stationery bubble artwork as part of the event.

Organizers say they came up with a bubble ball, because bubble wrap brings out the child in everyone.

“It’s a way to celebrate the child like spirit in all of us,” says Cheri Burns from Child Serve.

The event is expected to bring in over 400 people, all with the hopes of helping child serve’s ultimate mission.

“The goal is to raise awareness for everything that Child Serve does, they touch so many children and families in our state and also to raise money for them to buy equipment to help service those children,” says even co-chair Nikki Syverson.

Child Serve is hoping tonight’s fundraiser will help fund a new pediatric imaging program so children don’t have to be transported to outside centers for x-rays.
