Some incredible families from the Atlanta area are spending the next couple days living life to the fullest, putting their worries about the future on hold, thanks to Bert’s Big Adventure.
Bert’s Big Adventure hosted its big sendoff this morning with a fun 10th anniversary party for families, friends and supporters.
That’s ten year that the non-profit, created by Bert from Q100 and his wife Stacy, has organized a group to send children with chronic and terminal illnesses to Walt Disney World®, along with their families.
At the sendoff this morning Bert’s Big Adventure announced it’s getting bigger, expanding their mission to Indianapolis and Nashville next year.
The party was hosted at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel Atlanta Airport where children enjoyed Nintendo Wii entertainment by Amusement Masters, outrageous hair styling by Bedazzle-Do, a special VIP section just for kids by Carter’s/OshKosh B’Gosh®, inflatable bounce houses, Disney characters, face painting and magicians. Parents and adults also received celebrity treatment with hair and make-up applications by Balance Salon, and mini massages.
Families were also surprised with amazing gifts on top of the trip, including a specially planned wedding for one couple of a child with special needs, to be held at Disney this weekend, a check for $15,000 to help buy a new vehicle (for a family with two vehicles that quit running the same day), and a specially-equipped van with a wheelchair lift for another family, among other things.
The event, organized each year by Posh Tot Events, was incredibly special. You can only imagine what the next few days will be like for these families!
