KISSIMMEE, FL (Oct 12th, 2015) Give Kids The World Village, a nonprofit resort for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families, will formally unveil its new Towne Hall at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, October 15.
The celebration will feature games, food, music and plenty of fun. Kissimmee Mayor Jim Swan will attend, as will Mayor Clayton, the six-foot rabbit who serves as both mayor and mascot of the Village. Give Kids The World President and CEO Pamela Landwirth will speak briefly.
The new Towne Hall, which is about 53,000 square feet, took a year to build. The architect was C. T. Hsu & Associates and the builder was Welbro Building Corporation. The exterior is covered in vibrant, primary colors reflecting Towne Hall’s whimsical design and candy-coated theme.
Inside, the ground floor houses a new food court (Café Clayton) and a spacious multi-purpose room, perfect for entertaining guests during inclement weather (The Hoppening Place). The second floor houses Give Kids The World Village’s administrative offices.
Café Clayton is operated with the generous help of corporate partners Perkins Restaurant & Bakery, Boston Market and Papa John’s Pizza.
The west side of Towne Hall connects to a newly renovated Gingerbread House, a longtime Village icon. The Gingerbread House previously served as the kitchen and dining hall of the Village. With the opening of Café Clayton, it will be used exclusively for dining.
What: Ribbon cutting for the new Towne Hall at Give Kids The World Village.
Where: Give Kids The World Village, 210 South Bass Road, Kissimmee.
