The Workers' Compensation Institute (WCI) will host its 4th annual WCI Give Kids the World benefit gala on Aug. 5, 2017 at 6 p.m. at the Orlando (Fla.) World Marriott.

Proceeds from the event go to Give Kids the World, a Kissimmee, Fla.-based storybook-themed village that hosts seriously and often terminally ill children and their families for a week while they enjoy Orlando’s theme parks, all free of charge.

The gala event includes a sit-down dinner, silent auction and entertainment by the Dueling Pianos. The silent auction will have items that include hotel stays, sports memorabilia, jewelry and much more. Individual tickets are $50 each, while a table of 10 is $450. (To purchase tickets, visit the event page on WCI's website and enter the number of tickets in the purple box.)

Those wishing to make a donation for the silent auction can do so via WCI. For those interested in sponsoring the event, levels range from $250 to $5,000.

WCI's Workers' Compensation Educational Conference (WCEC) willl be held Aug. 6-10 at the Orlando World Marriott. The dinner follows the Institute's Saturday volunteer day at Give Kids the World; conference attendees are encouraged to participate. So many conference attendees volunteered in 2016 — nearly 500 people — that the volunteer effort expanded to span three days.  

Special hotel rates of $99 for Friday and Saturday nights will be given to those who register and attend the gala; those interested can visit WCI's dedicated web page for more information.
