At the event all the WWE superstars, especially Titus O’Neil, put a lot of smiles on kids’ faces, a WWE mantra.
The center is where kids (elementary to high school age) go after school for activities, education, enrichment and sports. Robotics is big at the center, too.
Orlando City Commissioner/District 2A Tony Ortiz attended the event, discussing this worthwhile facility and its friendly and dedicated staff.
A family atmosphere for sure, the center is at 6123 La Costa Dr., Orlando 32807.
