Dear Sponsors,

On behalf of Give Kids the World please accept my heartfelt gratitude for your interest in becoming a sponsor for GumboPalooza – benefiting Give Kids the World, an annual event that celebrates our love of fishing, while simultaneously raising much needed funds and awareness for Give Kids the World.

Give Kids the World Village is a 70-acre, nonprofit “storybook” resort, located near Central Florida’s most beloved attractions, where children with life-threatening illnesses and their families are treated to weeklong, cost-free fantasy vacations. Since 1986, Give Kids the World has welcomed more than 130,000 families.

Now in its sixth year, GumboPalooza has raised more than $36,500 to support the Village. We invite you to join us in what is sure to be our most exciting and successful year yet. There will be live entertainment, exotic animal interactions, a silent auction, raffles and the main event – a gumbo cook off that provides unlimited tastings to guests!

GumboPalooza is only made possible by the generosity of our corporate sponsors. When you become a sponsor, you can do so with confidence that you are partnering with a nationally ranked non-profit. For nine consecutive years, Give Kids the World has been awarded a 4-star rating for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency for the ninth consecutive year by Charity Navigator, America’s largest and most-utilized independent evaluator of charities.

Thank you in advance for your efforts. Through your generosity, Give Kids the World will be able to continue fulfilling wishes for precious children at a time when they need magic and happiness most.
