Ripley’s Believe It or Not is bringing back its Gimme Five Food Drive campaign to combat hunger at all their locations. This year’s food drive will take place from Sunday, Nov. 4 through Thursday, Nov. 8, 2012. Guests who bring a donation of five non-perishable food items can get a ticket to Ripley’s Believe It or Not Orlando Odditorium for just $5 (regular adult ticket price is $19.99). All the food collected will go to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.
“This is a win-win situation,” said Jim Pattison Jr., president of Ripley Entertainment. “We’re able to help needy families put food on the table and also offer a great discount when families visit our Odditoriums.”
Last year’s Gimme Five Food Drive netted more than 15,000 donations and helped feed tens of thousands of people across the country.
Suggested donations include juice, soup, beans, tuna, cereal, canned fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, pasta, tomato sauce and baby food. Ripley’s “Gimme Five” promotion may not be combined with any other offers. One discount ticket available for every five non-perishable food items donated.
Ripley’s Orlando Odditorium is located at 8201 International Drive. Hours are from 9 am to midnight daily.
