We are proud to be sponsoring the three ring circus Wagner Chiropractic in Eustis, Florida, is hosting to raise money for the 1 in 3 kids in Lake County, Florida who are left hungry. Lake County is located just minutes from the Walt Disney World Resort. Join us October 24th from 4-7 PM at their offices at 2775 South Bay Street in beautiful Eustis, Florida. They will be raffling off $3,000 worth of prizes. All proceeds will be going to three great charities: Pat Burke's Hoops Life, The United Way of Lake and Sumter Counties and Deliver the Difference. You can find out more about these charities below.
If you cannot make it to the circus, please consider donating to this great group of charities who not only help in the Orlando area, but also help those in need around the world.

Deliver the Difference
We started by packaging 200,000 meals for the earthquake disaster in Haiti. In that first year we packaged 246,000 meals. 2011 started quickly with 100,000 meals packaged after the Japan earthquake, 50,000 meals packaged after the Alabama tornadoes, 10,000 meals packaged after the Joplin tornado, and the 154,000 meals packaged for the Horn of Africa. At the end of the year over 507,000 meals were packaged. At home we started to notice the number of homeless in our own communities and decided we had to do something. In November we prepared and served Thanksgiving dinner for over 1,200 people. In December we prepared and delivered over 800 Boxes of Hope in Lake County. Over 2,400 volunteers gave their time to package these meals. http://www.deliverthedifference.org/
