EVENTS DONATE MORE THAN $1.1 M TO LOCAL CHARITIES IN 2009

Orange County Convention Center tradeshows donate more than $1.1 million locally in 2009

Food, school and building supplies among donations
While the Orange County Convention Center is known for providing an economic boost to the Central Florida community, it's also become a major source of donations for several of the area's charitable organizations. In 2009, it's estimated more than $1.1 million in funds, goods and services were donated to local organizations by visiting conventions and tradeshows and their exhibitors and attendees.

More than two dozen visiting shows made donations that included nearly 250,000 pounds of food to local food banks, more than $175,000 in educational supplies and more than $100,000 in building supplies.

"We're very proud of all the conventions and shows that choose to make a donation to one of our local groups," said Kathie Canning, the Convention Center's Deputy General Manager. "It's great to see our visitors are providing a positive economic impact to our community not only by spending locally, but also giving locally."

About The Orange County Convention Center
The Orange County Convention Center is the second largest convention facility in the country. Each year OCCC brings more than 200 events to the Central Florida area. As a result, roughly 1.4 million attendees contribute approximately $1.4 billion to the area's economic impact each year.
