The Florida FIRST Robotics Education Foundation (FFREF), which produces the Orlando Regional, was among 102 non-profits at the recent Disney Grant ceremony held at the Dr Phillips Performing Arts Center in Orlando on March 30.
Disney gave $4.5 million in donations to Central Florida non-profits for 2015, with their donation to FFREF helping support the Orlando Regional. FFREF board members Chris Fairey and Erik Halleus attended the event.
Each non-profit received a Mousecar commemorative trophy, and enjoyed some classic Disney entertainment, with ” a fabulous program with five outstanding singers who provided a wonderful performance,” said Chris Fairey, adding, ” Of course no Disney performance would be complete without Mickey and Minnie. The performance ended with a shower of confetti and loud applause.”
Just like a FIRST event!
Thank you Disney, for your generous and continued support of the Orlando Regional, and for helping us keep the robot magic alive!
