Skate World also offers Christian Skate Nights throughout the year and hosts numerous church and school fundraisers. Skate World has donated tens of thousands of dollars to various non-for-profit organizations.

BIRTHDAY PARTIES:
Have your next birthday celebration with us and make it easy on yourself, we set up, serve and clean up. Skate World have several packages to choose from and we offer a little something for everyone. You can reserve tables in our cafe area or have a semi private party in our VIP Glow Room or rent out the entire facility for a fun afternoon of celebrations! We make our own pizza, so it’s hot and fresh and offer a variety of food platters along with ice cold Pepsi products. We have a great selection of skates which serves as a great birthday present! The only thing you need to bring is the cake!

ABOUT SKATE WORLD:
Skate World is owned and operated by Chanel Bellotto, who is a 3rd generation skating rink operator. Her grandfather opened the 1st skating rink in Lakeland near the hospital in the early 70’s and her dad bought the rink from him in 1977, at its current location. Chanel took over in May of 2007, when her dad unexpectedly passed away from cancer. Chanel didn’t intend to keep the skating rink, but after running it for a few short months, she realized the opportunity she had to impact the lives of many children. She has spent the last several years renovating and remodeling to make the facility fun, safe and clean. Her latest and biggest improvement was installing the F.A.S.T. (Flat, Durable, Versatile, Jointless) floor system, which is the latest in skating floor technology. In addition, a VIP party room was created, new carpet and paint, lights and sound system, new skates and equipment.

The reason Skate World is open today and has survived 4 decades of transition, economic crises, and generations of families is because of customer service! Adonis (Chanel’s dad) was a man known for his generosity, kindness, patience, charisma and charm. He had fun with the kids at the birthday parties (you better watch out, if you were one of his repeat customers, you more than likely would end up with a little bit of cake smeared on your face!) or you might be embarrassed at how loud Happy Birthday could be sung! Adonis always had a bounce to his step and you would never know if he was having a bad day. He always had a smile on his face and he was known as a big brother and to many a 2nd dad. He had a heart of gold and deeply cared for each child that walked through the doors. Chanel continues to follow in his footsteps and continue his legacy and cannot emphasize enough importance on caring for these kids, showing and teaching them respect and providing a facility that is FUN, safe and clean!

Young Living Essential Oils - Lauren Bretz
1943 Eloise Cove Drive, Winter Haven, Florida 33884

My family and I have been using Young Living Essential Oils and their essential oil infused products for 5 years. I was a tired, stressed out mom with 4, little kids when I finally found YLEOs (we have 5 now!) I had one child who needed real options that would work for his issues. Within a few weeks, we had incredible results and we have helped over 12,000 families to do the same. The products have radically changed our lives and it is our mission to come alongside other families to serve them with their health and wellness needs. We are so thankful to be back in Central Florida, after living away for 13 years. I’m still in the trenches with you, Mama. I don’t have all of the answers, but we can learn together!

Young Living Essential Oils started in 1994 and has been the world leader in essential oils ever since. Their therapeutic products are a farm to family experience. Through the painstaking steps of their proprietary Seed to Seal production process, they produce the best, most authentic essential oils in the world (see www.seedtoseal.com). They are committed to providing pure, powerful products for every family and lifestyle, all infused with the life-changing benefits of our essential oils.

Young Living’s mission: We honor our stewardship to champion nature’s living energy, essential oils, by fostering a community of healing and discovery while inspiring individuals to wellness, purpose, and abundance.

NEW in 2018, not only do we have 500 essential oil-infused products, but we also have completely chemical free, safe, gluten free, paraben free makeup!
