Promotion in a Box - 100th Anniversary of Miniature Golf

Give Kids The World is offering a fundraising opportunity to FECs this summer, to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Miniature Golf, which happens this year, 2016.   Send us pictures of your facility getting involved, and be included in our wrap-up event at IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando this November!  Our goal is to raise $95,000 by selling commemorative miniature golf balls featuring Give Kids The World and 100th Anniversary of Miniature Golf logos.  Show your support today, and bring awareness to the Miniature Golf industry through inviting the media and planning celebrations!  Your "Tool Box Kit" will be full of ideas to mark the celebration, and raise funds!  Questions?  Call or email Leslie Hutcheson at 703-299-5761.

Amusements Attractions Food Purchasing

Our U.S. members qualify to participate in a food purchasing co-op;  AAFPO pools the collective buying power of our members to achieve better pricing on fresh food, dry goods and chemicals.

“We have been a very early participant in this new and exciting IAAPA sanctioned program. The AAFPO service has been great and we are averaging food cost savings across the board of over 13%. Our annual savings will be more than 30 times my cost of membership.  It really pays, or in this case SAVES, to be an active member of IAAPA."
Richard Sanfilippo, Owner Sam’s Fun City    

For more information on this cost-saving initiative, call 904-814-8033.
