Metro Atlanta’s Professional Indoor Lacrosse Team Invites Fans to Join Them in Supporting Local Nonprofit
The Georgia Swarm has proudly chosen Bert’s Big Adventure® as a beneficiary and partner for its 2017 season. The Georgia Swarm is a member of the National Lacrosse League (NLL) – North America’s professional indoor lacrosse league featuring the best players in the world. The team will not only provide a portion of ticket proceeds from the 2017 season but will also assist with a number of additional efforts throughout the year to aid in the funding of the nonprofit organization, which provides a magical, all-expenses-paid, five-day journey to Walt Disney World® for children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families. This partnership will also provide support for Bert’s Big Adventure’s year-round initiatives such as Reunion Adventures and the Fairy Godparent volunteer program.
“We’re thrilled to be on board as a charity partner this year with Georgia Swarm,” says Bert’s Big Adventure Co-Founder and host of The Bert Show, Bert Weiss. “Their support allows Bert’s Big Adventure to fulfill our mission to take very deserving children and their families to Walt Disney World, which is truly an experience of a lifetime.”
“Partnering with Bert’s Big Adventure is a natural fit for our organization,” says Swarm Co-Owner and President, Andy Arlotta. “The Swarm takes great pride in giving back to our local community and the incredible work Bert’s Big Adventure does for children is truly life-changing and inspiring. We’re looking forward to a successful partnership in 2017 and for many years to come.”
Georgia Swarm opens their 2017 season at home on Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Field at Infinite Energy Arena (Duluth) on January 7, 2017.
