Miami — Sponsors of the State of the Industry Conference heard first-hand that candy provided for the event will be donated to the Give Kids the World Village charity, which benefits terminally ill children.

 

The organization aims to provide week-long, cost-free vacations to these children and their families at its facilities in central Florida, according to Pam Landwirth, organization president, who was on hand at the conference to personally thank the industry.

 

To date, the organization has welcomed some 127,000 families to its resort-style destination, which hosts weekly Halloween and Christmas celebrations. Landwirth reports that five tons of candy are handed out annually at Give Kids the World Village during its weekly Halloween celebrations alone.
