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 IMG_1079Disney 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!
