Grace Bennett has always wanted to take a hot air balloon ride. At age 100, she'll get her wish as she rises up in a tethered balloon at Ehrhardt Park, south of her home at Friendship Village Tempe.

Her ride of a lifetime, scheduled for 7 a.m. June 7, is the result of planning and coordination by friends and staff at the retirement community as part of its Living Well initiative.

More than 100 friends and neighbors from Friendship Village plan to see Grace off in her beautiful balloon.
