The Winterfest Jr. Captain program began five years ago with 15 year old, Amanda Blake as she battled cancer. Fast forward to 2013, FPL has taken this amazing program to a level beyond our wildest dreams. We had 14 nominees this year and over 50,000 people viewed the contest on facebook.
The 2013 Jr. Captain is 16 year old Lauren Bendesky, battling stage IV Neuroblastoma. Lauren was nominated by A Prom to Remember. She and twenty five of her friends will ride aboard the Jr. Captain Showboat powered by FPL.
