Grand Lakes Resort JW Marriott
All of the events are being held at the JW Marriott at the Grande Lakes Resort that shares the property with the Marriott’s sister property, the Ritz Carlton. The JW Marriott was the first resort to build an elaborate lazy river in the front of the property and the Norman’s Restaurant at the Ritz Carlton is featured as one of our 10 best romantic restaurants around Orlando.
Serving more than 1,100 children and adults with disabilities daily
Winequest is the main fundraiser for non-profit Quest Inc, an agency with the United Way, that has been serving the Orlando community for almost 50 years. Quest works with adults and children that strugle with ailments such as Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome and other developmental disabilities to help them achieve their goals in life through resources such as speech pathologists, occupational therapists, and educational professionals for children and job training for adults.
With cuts for such programs continuing to be cut at the state and national level, it is up to the community of Orlando to take care of it’s own when helping out those that need more assistance than most. Winequest is a great way to spend a weekend and help out those that are less fortunate.
