Old McMicky's Farm - Teachers Rock - $20k Teacher Appreciation Dream Wedding Giveaway
This Dream Wedding Gift is open to all public and private school teachers in all grades Pre-K through 12th grade.
Teachers make such a huge difference in the lives of children and families in our Tampa Bay community, 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 Dream Wedding Gift.
The “Teachers ROCK” appreciation gift has three primary goals.
1. To provide a great gift of a Dream Wedding to a deserving teacher.
2. To promote Awareness and Appreciation in the general public / Tampa Bay community of school teachers and the tremendous contributions teachers make to our local children and families.
3. To help build Esprit de Corps and Pride even more for our local teachers as a group internally.
To help achieve the goal of teacher appreciation, especially goals #2 and 3, all applicants for the dream wedding will be requested to submit a video to include: A. What they love about being a teacher and B. What are some of their most special or proudest moments of being a teacher. The farm will then produce a short video of highlighted clips to be used to promote Teachers ROCK public participation and to establish the most important human connection to the people who serve as teachers in our community.
The Teachers ROCK appreciation gift will provide one teacher residing and teaching in Hillsborough, Pinellas or Pasco counties the wedding of their dreams at the beautiful, lakeside venue at The Barn at Crescent Lake at Old McMicky’s Farm.
Their big day will host up to 100 of the winning couple’s family and friends for a beautiful wedding ceremony and reception. This amazing wedding will include everything a couple dreams of on their wedding day – and more! All services are donated by the farm and our generous vendor partners.
There is no cost to the schools or teachers
How Teachers ROCK Works
There is an Application period, a Voting period, the Winner Announcement and then the Wedding. The farm will select approximately 6 – 8 of the applications as finalists, and then the winning teacher will be selected by the general public (fellow teachers, students and their families, and the general public) via voting. Providing there are applications from each county, the farm’s goal will be to select finalists representing teachers in each of Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco counties to reflect our Tampa Bay community.
Application Period: Sept. 25 - Oct. 16, 2017
Voting Period: Oct. 30 - Nov 20, 2017
Announcement: Dec 5, 2017 On or About
The Wedding: May 12, 2018 During National Teacher Appreciation Month
