IAAPA raises $120,000
The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) and attractions industry professionals raised more than $120,000 for Give Kids the World (GKTW) Village in Kissimmee, Florida, during IAAPA Attractions Expo 2014.
GKTW is a non-profit resort that provides cost-free vacations for children from around the world with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
The money was raised by IAAPA through private donations and a range of fundraising events, including the 12th Annual IAAPA International Charity Golf Tournament, 5th Annual Motorcycle Ride, 5K Fun Run and 1K Walk, and Chance-to-Win Raffle.
"We greatly appreciate our longstanding partnership with IAAPA and its members, and we are so thankful for the continued support," said Pamela Landwirth, president of GKTW.
