Pamela Landwirth, president, Give Kids The World said, "Each year we look forward to the annual IAAPA Golf Tournament. It is a celebration of the partnership Give Kids The World has built with IAAPA and its generous members. For eight years now, the golf tournament has helped us to continue to inspire hope for children who need it most, and we thank everyone who makes this event possible for us." IAAPA has partnered with GKTW for 15 years to raise donations and coordinate amusement park and attraction visits for children with life-threatening illnesses. The golf tournament is one of several events held in conjunction with IAAPA Attractions Expo week to generate support for GKTW. About Give Kids The World
