Fun Spot America raises $110,000 for schools during Golden Rule Day
Kickoff event shines by raising funds for schools and brings communities together
ORLANDO – Fun Spot America Theme Parks held its first Golden Rule Day recently at their Orlando and Kissimmee, Florida parks and raised $55,000 for Orange and $55,000 for Osceola County Public Schools.
“We were thrilled with the turnout by guests helping to support local schools,” said Fun Spot America CEO and owner John Arie Jr. “Golden Rule Day stands as a shining example of how we can all work together to help one another and make this a better world,” John Arie Jr said.
Fun Spot America offered a special discounted price for families and donated $5 from every Single Day Fun Pass sold to the Orange or Osceola County Public Schools. The funds will enhance learning opportunities for students, support our teachers, and strengthen area schools.
“Golden Rule Day will become an annual event at the park where families can have fun together while helping others in our community,” John Arie Jr said. “At Fun Spot, we look forward to building on our tradition of treating others the way you want to be treated and we encourage other businesses to do the same,” John Arie Jr. said.
“Working as Partners in Education for over 20 years at our Fun Spot America Theme Parks in Florida, we think now is the time to join together with local businesses and community officials in Orange and Osceola, Counties to give back and plant positive seeds for a continuously caring culture,” John Arie Jr. said.
Area businesses along with Orange and Osceola County community leaders and their families were also at Fun Spot America to enjoy Golden Rule Day and support the fundraising. “Fun Spot is leading by example here in Florida and this kickoff event is a reflection of what our communities accomplish when we serve others first,” said Florida Citrus Sports, CEO, Steve Hogan.
Fun Spot America Orlando and Kissimmee are open daily this Fall; open Monday through Thursdays at 2:00 pm, and Friday, Saturday and Sundays at 10:00 am and closing nightly at midnight.
