Through the generosity of its team and member partners, Visit Orlando has provided more than a half a million dollars to organizations that work to make our community a better place to live, work and play. Three locally based organizations have been selected to receive proceeds from Visit Orlando's 2016 events and programs. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Florida, which provides children facing adversity with professionally supported relationships that change their lives for the better, has been selected to be the member events recipient. Mustard Seed of Central Florida, which provides household furnishings and clothing to those who have suffered disaster or personal tragedy, was selected as the recipient of Visit Orlando's 2016 Golf Tournament. And finally, monies raised from Visit Orlando's Magical Dining Month, held each September, will support the Russell Home for Atypical Children, which provides a loving and caring home for brain-damaged children. Visit Orlando looks forward to working with these notable organizations.
