O-Town MacDown Competition Returns on September 12th, 2015; Unlimited Mac-n-Cheese to Benefit Give Kids the World

Hi everyone!

The O-Town MacDown to benefit Give Kids the World is back again for a second year on Saturday, September 12th, 2015. It is not only a macaroni-and-cheese competition for many talented chefs in the Central Florida area (including from Four Seasons Resort Orlando, Port Orleans French Quarter Resort, Hard Rock Cafe – and many more!), but at just $10.00 per adult and $5.00 per child (12 and under) advance purchase, it includes unlimited mac-n-cheese samples. Free parking, a kids fun zone, and live entertainment are also part of the not-to-miss fun! The event will be held this year at Osceola Heritage Park Exhibit Hall on 1875 Silver Spur Lane, Kissimmee, Florida 34744. The presenting sponsor is Tom+Chee.

Tickets are available online here, $10 for adults and $5 for kids 12-years-old and under. There’s no charge for children under 3. Ticket prices will be higher at the door! RSVP at the O-Town MacDown Facebook page and watch for any new information there!

Give Kids the World is such a great organization, and you can have a great time while supporting it. I have volunteered at the village many times since around 2002, and have seen it grow leaps and bounds (especially in the last few years).
Purchase your tickets in advance for:
  • All-you-can-eat Mac-n-Cheese!
  • Live Entertainment
  • Celebrity Chef Cooking Demonstrations
  • Kids’ Fun Zone including face painting, macaroni art station and character meet-and-greets

Give Kids The World Village is a 79-acre, nonprofit “storybook” Village located near Central Florida’s most beloved attractions. Here, children and their families are treated to weeklong, cost-free fantasy vacations, complete with accommodations in the Village’s whimsical villas, transportation, donated attraction tickets, meals, and much more.
