Inaugural Blogger Bowl raises more than $20,000 for Give Kids The World Village

by Banks Lee


On Sept. 12, 2013, “Orlando Attractions Magazine” hosted an event at Downtown Disney’s Splitsville which brought together many local theme park websites to bowl and raise money for Give Kids The World. We are happy to report that more than $20,000 was raised, which will help many children with life-threatening deceases and their families enjoy Orlando’s attractions.

Here’s a quick look at the event, which included a silent auction, a ’50s themed costume contest and appearances by Mayor Clayton from Give Kids the World Village and pro wrestler Scotty 2 Hotty. You’ll also see some special bowling challenges which were sponsored for donations:
