    Give Kids the World. An amazing organization! From their website: Give Kids The World Village is a 79-acre, nonprofit “storybook” resort in Central Florida. Here, children with life-threatening illnesses and their families are treated to weeklong, cost-free vacations.

    We are working on a date for sales to start...I am hoping before May to give everyone ample time to buy tickets.

    They will be on sale until June 10th. We will have to give the Hershey Lodge our numbers for the meal.

    Right now we are talking about a child's price for the Saturday event. Having all events at the Lodge, means we have to use their catering for the event and they do not separate Adult and Child costs for meals.

    We may go, but we have an RV... is there a separate deal to get into the event without staying at the hotel?

    The price is would be the same for everyone, even if you are not staying. You would just pay for the events either Friday or Saturday.

    I have added prices and link to the event on Eventzilla to the first post on this thread.

    Tickets will go on sale later tomorrow and will be on sale until June 3rd. We have to give the lodge our final numbers then.

    Hey Guys... PLEASE. If you are thinking of coming and want to stay with all of us at the Lodge, you certainly do not have to, start thinking of making the reservation. No Deposit needed.

    you can go to the Website:
    https://resweb.passkey.com/go/GKTWBENEFIT2016
    Or Call 1800 HERSHEY.

    But the Rack rate is 449 and or rate is 189. you can always cancel if you need to.

    Info on the Lodge is below.

    Hope to see some new faces this year.
