The 2015 Dream Factory National Convention in Orlando was awesome! Thank you to all the chapters who were represented, so many of our wonderful volunteers who joined us for the three days, to the Holiday Inn Resort for being the host hotel, Give Kids the World village for allowing us the privilege to use their amazing facility for so many of our meetings, and to all of our supporters who helped make the weekend so special.


We've been granting dreams since 1980 and are looking forward to a great year in 2016!

Highlights from the weekend were welcoming families that were part of mAAgic Flight into Orlando on Friday and spending time with those same families at a party at the village on Saturday night. It's why we do what we do, and was great to be able to interact with Dream Factory families on their actual trip. All of our volunteers loved it! Another highlight from the weekend was the awards ceremony on Friday night.
