    Just an FYI for locals, the Coasting For Kids fundraiser at all Cedar Fair Parks (including Dorney Park) is scheduled for June 7, 2015. We'd love to see some Hershey folks there.

    Hello ALL!

    We will be staying at the Hershey Lodge again this year.

    The block is open and ready for booking. The rate this year is $199 plus tax per night. (currently rack rate is $299). If you are interested call into the reservations line at 1-800-Hershey and ask for the Give Kids the World block. You will be asked to place a 1 night deposit to hold the room and asked to pay any remaining balances upon check in. You will have up until 72 hours (3 days) before your scheduled check in time to cancel with a FULL refund. The block rate is good from check in June 25 thru June 28th.

    I strongly recommend doing this as soon as possible as there was a concert festival announce today ,Jan 20, 2015 and rooms will probably sell out at some point. So if you have any interest in coming and staying at the Hershey Lodge go ahead and make a reservation and know that you can get your full deposit back if you cancel before 72 hrs (3 days) of you check in date.


    I can say that the committee and I have discussed having one or two events at the Lodge similar to last years Bingo, but not Bingo. Just in case that is a deciding factor for anyone.

    Hope to see a lot of you there!

    If there are any questions please feel free to contact me

    The rooms at the Lodge have 2 queen beds. They do not have cots available but they do have pack and plays, or can bring extra bedding to the room if you want to make something up on the floor.

    The theater has asked us to give them a number by the middle of May. So if you are thinking about the Hershey Theater tour and are coming the whole weekend...get the weekend package!!! Limited number of weekend packages will be available and only for a limited time. Get them early and receive a free t-shirt!!!!!
