The donation was made by Chairman of the Board Spence Wilson, Board Member Spence Wilson, Jr., and CEO Don Harrill of Holiday Inn Club Vacations to Give Kids The World President Pamela Landwirth. It is part of a multi-year commitment by the company to support this 70-acre whimsical village where more than 7,400 children with life-threatening illnesses have their wishes to visit Central Florida come true ever year.
Holiday Inn Club Vacations shares a long history with the organization that dates back to its founder Kemmons Wilson and Give Kids The World founder Henri Landwirth.
Don Harrill said, “Our company is proud to continue to build on our long relationship with Give Kids The World, which holds a special place close to the heart of our organization. It continues a remarkable legacy of caring that makes such a difference in the lives of many wonderful children and their families.”
“It’s been a journey of love as more than 135,000 wish children and their families have come to the Village to experience the happiness that inspires hope since our beginnings in 1986, and Holiday Inn Club Vacations has been an unwavering partner,” added Pamela Landwirth of Give Kids The World. “Their ongoing love and support inspires us to continue to do everything we can to give so many deserving families a week of relaxation, fun and memories that will last forever.”
