Since 2014, Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari has donated the proceeds of our HoliWood Nights auction to Give Kids the World. This year we are VERY excited to help raise more funds for the incredible organization by hosting a Coasting for Kids event on Saturday, August 29!
What is Coasting for Kids?
The concept is simple! After registering online, participants enjoy a day at Holiday World and by doing so they give that same excitement and families who need it most! Coasting for Kids events help the Give Kids the World Village provide cost-free, weeklong vacations to critically ill kids and their families.
The Village and its community partners provide children and their families accommodations in fully-furnished villas, transportation, tickets to theme parks, meals, daily entertainment and much more. Families enjoy the magic of Central Florida’s theme parks and attractions while staying at a storybook resort unlike anyplace on earth!
