Travel Around I-Drive at Pointe Orlando
inaugural Travel Around I-Drive at Pointe Orlando event took place on May 5th,
2015 to celebrate National Travel & Tourism Week.
The event was a fun scavenger hunt with
5 stops, the participating venues being Copper Canyon Grill, Tharoo & Co.
Jewelry Boutique, Hollister, Hard Knocks and Taverna Opa. Prizes were given for
Best Dressed, First Individual to cross the finish line and to the First Team
Sponsors were Visit Orlando, Pointe
Orlando, I-Drive Improvement District, Paramount Hospitality Management Resort
Collection and Mears Transportation Group.
We successfully raised $7,715 with only
54 participants! All proceeds benefited the I-Drive YMCA Aquatic Center Scholarship
This event replaced the annual I-Drive
5k run, which we had held for the past 12 years, yet due to many other
conflicting races happening on the same date, we cancelled it for 2015. Over
the past 13 years we have been able to donate total of $140,148 to the I-Drive YMCA Aquatic Center’s Scholarship
fund by holding an annual fundraising event.
Our goal is grow the annual Travel Around I-Drive event
and continue giving back to our community!
