In addition to the live entertainment, every weekday from June 3 – 28, Allstate and the Tom Joyner Morning Show will be giving away 20 family all-inclusive packages to the 2013 Allstate Tom Joyner Family Reunion.
“The Allstate Tom Joyner Family Reunion creates an atmosphere of one true family that celebrates people and what we love,” says Joyner, whose radio show airs in over 105 markets with an audience of more than eight million listeners. “When we first created this event, we wanted families to experience a truly spectacular vacation that was unique, all-inclusive, affordable and more than anything…entertaining. And not only have we done that, but we’ve done it for ten years strong. We have created a new Black Family tradition that has come to represent entertainment, exclusivity and fun – and I hope we continue creating lifetime memories for families for another ten years and more.”
Joyner’s family “party with a purpose” was created in 2003 with thousands of families coming to Orlando each year to attend.
Last year alone, more than 16,000 guests made their way to the sold out event, which included show stopping performances by New Edition, Kem, Angie Stone, Mint Condition, Chubb Rock, Diggy Simmons, OMG Girlz, and many more.
Past performers and guests have included Aretha Franklin, Earth, Wind & Fire, Chris Brown, Destiny’s Child, Lionel Richie, LL Cool J, Charlie Wilson, Dr. Bobby Jones, and news anchor Soledad O’Brien.
“Allstate is proud to have partnered with Tom Joyner for ten years and celebrate the importance of family fellowship and togetherness,” said Stacy Sharpe, field vice president of Allstate’s Capital region. “We hope to continue to lend our ‘good hands’ to the good times for years to come.”
