Happy Hour for Hunger


WHEN: November 19, 2015 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Join us in front of City Hall for the exciting kickoff event to launch the 2015 “Feed the Need” Fundraising Campaign! The City of Winter Park, Rollins College, Sodexo, Think Creative, Inc., and Winter Park Chamber of Commerce have joined forces for the third year to create “Feed the Need”, a powerful fundraising engine, purely developed to raise money to help Second Harvest Food Bank provide more food for families in need.

Help end hunger in Winter Park by donating as part of the City of Winter Park team! In central Florida, over 172,000 children struggle with hunger. When these kids have no food, we have no choice but to respond. Feed the Need presented by Florida Distributing Company, Mayflower Retirement Community and Winter Park Memorial Hospital, is not your average food drive. It is the first of its kind, community-wide effort with campaign partners. Thank you for your support as we work to end hunger!

Did you know that last year Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida distributed more than 36 million pounds of grocery product – the equivalent of more than 24 million meals?

Join the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce for a fall-themed happy hour at the Winter Park Village. This fun fall evening will feature drinks and appetizers provided by your favorite Winter Park Village restaurants, plus live entertainment and a photo booth. All ticket proceeds will benefit Feed the Need Winter Park, a community-wide effort to raise funds for Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida this November.

WHERE: Winter Park Village

COST: $25

Winter Park Hospital Offers Spa Experience to Expecting Mothers

Come Mother’s Day, the Winter Park Memorial Hospital will be unveiling its gift to the city’s moms: a new maternity wing that’s equipped with spa features that give off a relaxing vibe – something which most hospital fail to do these days.

The expanded wing of Dr. P. Phillips Baby Place boasts of free massages for mom, soothing afternoon tea, and a snazzy lounge where delicious smoothies are served. All the rooms in the wing come with a large HDTV, DVD player, and relaxing flameless candles and high-end beauty soaps in the bathroom. Each room also has an iPod dock so pregnant ladies can listen to music while they’re in labor. Whether its nature sounds, rock music, or rhythm and blues, your choice of music is totally up to you.

And if that’s not enough, dads also get to enjoy free massages, or they could just choose to calm their nerves at the lounge. Pregnancies can be tough on dads too you know.

Expecting mothers first get a tour of the facility when they’re 28 weeks pregnant. They get to see the amenities, check out the services, and get a feel for the place that’ll be they’re home for a few days come the Big Day.

With hospitals all over the country competing for maternity patients, it’s good to know that the City of Winter Park, Florida, isn’t about to be left behind.
