Odessa, FL (January, 15 2018) – Old McMicky’s Farm is pleased to announce that the “Teachers ROCK” 20K Teacher Appreciation Dream Wedding Giveaway voting is now open. The general public, students and students’ families are encouraged to show their appreciation for all teachers by voting to select a teacher to receive a free Dream Wedding of a lifetime. “Teachers make such a huge difference in the lives of children and families in all of our communities, we thought a great way for Old McMicky’s Farm and the community to show our appreciation was to help a teacher start a family of their own with this $20,000 wedding gift”, said farm owner Ralph Zuckerman.
Many local and national organizations are helping to get the word out about the gift and to promote Teacher Appreciation, including the Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco County Public School Systems, County Education Foundations, Teachers Unions, Teachers Associations, PTAs and Private School Associations. There is no cost to any school, teacher or participating organization.
