Ripley’s launches new “Homespun Heroes” contest to recognize people making a difference in their community

All Ripley’s Believe It or Not!® attractions in Florida are hosting a new event for some unbelievable summer fun – Ripley’s Superhero Summer!

Ripley’s will be recognizing real-life heroes and supporting local charities. Ripley’s Orlando is looking for nominations for its new “Homespun Heroes” contest that will recognize people who have gone above and beyond to make a difference in their community.

Starting May 29, Ripley’s will choose one weekly winner who will win a lifetime pass to Ripley’s and other prizes! Homespun Hero nominations for the Orlando area should be emailed to Paul Hoffine at hoffine@ripleys.com, and make sure to put “Hero” in the subject line. Nominees can be adults or children. Ripley’s is looking for people who have made a difference in the quality of life for their community, school, or an individual!

Ripley’s is also offering a $2,500 sweepstakes as part of Ripley’s Superhero Summer. This is open to anyone – all people need to do is enter in the lobby of any of Ripley’s Florida attractions. The randomly selected winner will get $2,500 and a charity of their choice will also get $2,500! The sweepstakes will run through May 29, 2017 – September 4, 2017.
