The original Central Florida family cook-off, the 6th Annual GumboPalooza is the one and only gumbo event benefitting Give Kids the World Village (GKTW), a 70 acre nonprofit resort that exists to fulfill the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses. Founded by the “fish whisperers”, a group of committed volunteers who host fishing clinics at GKTW, GumboPalooza was born out of a need to provide funding for the fishing program and has turned in Central Florida’s biggest and best gumbo cook-off event. Gumbo teams will have the opportunity to compete for prizes and bragging rights, while giving back to one of the nation’s top non-profits. Want a day off from cooking? Let the gumbo chefs do the stirring while you and your family enjoy an afternoon of great food, drink, entertainment and games for the kids. Peruse the top-notch silent auction items which include outdoor excursions, weekend getaways, amazing raffles, one-of-a-kind pieces of art and much more. Sponsorship opportunities are available at www.GumboPalooza.org.
