LEGOLAND provided activities to keep kids of all ages engaged. Families and friends battled it out – stacking straws, chalking with chopsticks and marble racing with noodles – for exclusive I Love Orlando and wildly different giveaways to the best attractions in town.

The three-day, action-packed stay featured a resource fair with nonprofit military organizations, a 5K run, military tank demonstration and a live concert featuring Gary Sinise & The Lt. Dan Band with a special appearance by Grammy-winner Lee Greenwood.

Westgate Resorts’ CEO David Siegel, a United States Air Force veteran, began the tradition of bringing deserving families to his Central Florida resort for the weekend celebration three years ago. Siegel said it is his honor to serve those who serve the country. He hopes to expand the event every year while showcasing all that Central Florida has to offer. Westgate Resorts concluded the spectacular weekend with a generous donation totaling to $50,000 in funds to three nonprofit organizations dedicated to helping service members and their families.

Our daughter’s dying wish to share her diary and save lives from drugs Available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Walmart.

“Our daughter’s legacy is that her death will save thousands of other people’s lives.” That’s the promise from her parents, David and Jackie Siegel. Carrying on Victoria’s legacy is their reason for publishing their daughter’s diary—teen slang, bad language and all. At 18, Victoria Siegel died of a drug overdose. Right after Victoria passed away, Jackie received a text from one of Victoria’s friends directing her to check her bedroom nightstand for a secret diary she had kept, and suggesting they publish it. The Siegels decided to honor Victoria’s last wish.

Celebrating 100 Years of Growth

oin A&W Restaurants in celebrating their historic milestone! Founded in 1919 at a parade in Lodi, California honoring returning World War I Veterans, A&W Restaurants has been serving up good food and good times for 100 years. Known for their signature Root Beer and Root Beer Floats, every A&W restaurant still makes their Root Beer fresh in store with real cane sugar and served up in a frosted mug. In addition to their famous namesake beverage, A&W is credited with inventing the Bacon Cheeseburger in 1963 when franchisee and present-day Chairman of A&W, Dale Mulder, started topping burgers with bacon at the request of his repeat customers. And their friendly, lovable and goofy mascot Rooty, the Great Root Bear, was “born” in 1974. Rooty, as he’s affectionately known, is still a fixture today in A&W’s across the country.
