USA Today Called it the “Number One Thing to Do in December in Orlando” in 2020
ORLANDO, Fla. – (November 9, 2021) – ITEC Entertainment, a TAIT company, and industry leader of worldwide entertainment solutions, today announced its partnership with Give Kids The World Village, a nonprofit resort that brightens the lives of critically ill children and their families. ITEC will once again support and participate in Night of a Million Lights Holiday Spectacular beginning on Friday, November 12th and running through January 2nd. The immersive holiday light spectacle is brought together by themed entertainment leaders, including Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort and many other Fortune 500s, such as American Airlines, Pepsi, SeaWorld, LEGOLAND and more.
“We are thrilled to once again contribute to this incredible collaboration of our industry to bring joy to families during the Holiday season and support an amazing cause,” said Bill Coan, CEO and president of ITEC Entertainment. “At ITEC, we approach every project with a story, so our team was excited to transform this year’s villa with our designs and technology to create a whimsical holiday guest experience.”
Proceeds from the event will support Give Kids The World’s mission to provide vacations for critically ill children and their families. When wish-granting organizations receive a request from a critically ill child who wants to visit Central Florida, Give Kids The World fulfills the wish – providing each child and his/her family with a magical week-long stay at absolutely no cost. Each family receives transportation, accommodations in one of the Village’s 166 storybook residential villas, all meals and snacks, nightly entertainment, tickets to Orlando’s world-class theme parks and attractions, and priceless experiences at the Village. Since 1986, Give Kids The World has welcomed more than 176,000 families from 50 states and more than 76 countries.
Every year since 2005, Charity Navigator has awarded Give Kids The World its top designation, the four-star rating. Charity Navigator also ranks Give Kids The World among the top twenty charities nationwide. The Village is located at 210 South Bass Road in Kissimmee. To learn more, visit www.gktw.org.
