Give Kids The World Village, a nonprofit resort that welcomes children with life-threatening illnesses and their families on their wish trips, celebrated the 90th birthday of founder Henri Landwirth on March 7, 2017, with a party in his honor, and unveiled the new out-of-this-world makeover for its popular Ice Cream Palace.

Redesigned by a team from Walt Disney Imagineering, the Ice Cream Palace will get an intergalactic makeover and be renamed for founder Henri Landwirth, an hotelier, philanthropist and Holocaust survivor. The name and theme celebrates Henri’s history with the early space industry in Cocoa Beach, Florida.
