Last year, Island H2O water park hosted the popular Give Kids the World’s “Night of a Million Lights” event. While the holiday event won’t officially be returning to the water park this year, Island H2O water park leaders said part of the proceeds raised from this all-new event will help support the local nonprofit.

“We’re thrilled to introduce our first-ever ‘Holiday Nights’ at Island H2O Water Park. Beyond celebrating the season, we’re excited to partner with Give Kids the World Village in bringing to life an enchanting island-themed wonderland adorned with festive neon lights, immersive displays, captivating interactive experiences for kids, live entertainment, delectable treats, and much more,” said Ron Sutula, general manager of Island H2O Water Park. “As our park transforms into a Floridian holiday haven, we’re making a difference by dedicating a portion of the proceeds from ‘Holiday Nights’ to support the incredible work of Give Kids the World Village. This meaningful collaboration perfectly embodies our commitment to bringing a smile to every child’s face.”

Give Kids the World Village is an 89-acre, whimsical nonprofit resort in Central Florida that provides critically ill children and their families from around the world with life-changing week-long wish vacations at no cost. The nonprofit said since 1986, more than 188,000 wish families from all 50 states and 77 countries have been welcomed to the Village.

News 6 reached out to Give Kids the World Village to see what holiday event they plan to hold this holiday season. The nonprofit said they plan to announce something at a later date.
