It saddens and disappoints us to let you know that the Mascot Games have been postponed for one more year.

With our current world still working through the process of safety due to COVID-19, New Hope for Kids, out of continued caution, is forced to cancel the 2021 Mascot Games.  We know this is a favorite summertime event, but the safety of all campers and chaperones, the children and families who attend, and the Games’ supporters and volunteers is our number one priority.

As you may know, the Mascot Games is one of the largest sources of fundraising annually for New Hope.  We value our partnerships and will reach out to you again once a 2022 date has been set.

We appreciate the commitment you made to the Mascot Games and to the children of New Hope for Kids for whom the Games benefit.

We hope to see you at the Mascot Games in 2022!

From the entire New Hope family, we hope you and your family remain safe and healthy.

Will return 2022
at the Amway Center!

The Mascot Games feature approximately 30 mascots from sports teams across the country competing in a variety of games.

More than 18,000 fans enjoy thrilling and pulse-pounding competition, as mascots from MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, NCAA and the Arena Football League battle through gladiator themed games, to see who are the true champions of the mascot world.

All proceeds benefit:

New Hope for Kids, which provides support to children and families grieving the death of a loved one and to grant wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses in Central Florida.


One of our favorite events of the year! Fun for our whole family! Madison, Wish Child
