The crowd was large, the entertainment great and the food was outstanding at last year’s Gumbopalooza. This year’s event is destined to be even better.
On November 16th 2013, Fishing Florida Radio will host the third annual Central Florida Gumbo Cook-Off, aka Gumbopalooza. The event will benefit Give Kids The World, Anglers for Conservation and other local charities.
The event is being staged by Fishing Florida Radio, with help from Universal Studios Production Group, Fish on Fire, Hells Bay Boatworks, Mosquito Creek Outdoors and other sponsors. The event has raised over $25,000 to be used to introduce kids to the wonderful world of fishing and the outdoors.
The funds raised by the cook-off are used for fishing tackle and equipment for the children who are staying at Give Kids The World Village in Orlando Florida and to support programs of Anglers for Conservation.
The Village is a 70-acre resort complete with over 140 Villa accommodations, entertainment attractions, whimsical venues, and fun specifically designed for children with special needs.
In addition to promoting good marine stewardship, Anglers for Conservation introduces kids and families to fishing through their Hook Kids on Fishing events all over the state of Florida.
More sponsors are welcomed and needed for the event. If you would like to help support a fantastic cause by donating to the silent auction or making a cash contribution your can contact Steve Chapman (email@example.com).
