Andy Grammer Brings Joy to Kids at Give Kids The World Village
Dec 17th, 2018 [Kissimmee, FL]
International superstar Andy Grammer spends a morning bringing smiles to critically ill children at Give Kids The World Village (GKTW) in Kissimmee, Fla.
On Friday, December 14, 2018, Grammer visited guests staying at GKTW for a private meet-and-greet experience.
"I've worked with many charities, but I've never seen any quite like this. I was shocked to see a fully operating resort for families, before they even get to the theme parks," said Grammer. "And these children are so resilient. I am really humbled by the joy I've seen in these strong kids."
During his visit to GKTW, Grammer met with about 50 families during a private meet and greet experience, exclusive to Village guests. "We are so grateful to Andy and the rest of the Cure Bowl team for taking the time to meet with our families," said Jessica Mueller, content strategist at GKTW. "The meet and greet experience was an intimate opportunity for families to meet one of their favorite celebrities, take photos, sign autographs, and in some cases even get right down on the floor and play together. For some families, this was the highlight of their wish trip."
Grammer was visiting Central Florida during a trip to perform at the Cure Bowl. His visit to Give Kids The World was a part of this weekend-long experience where he was joined by IndyCar racer Jack Harvey and representatives from the 2019 Cure Bowl.
