Bert’s Big Adventure’s five-day, all-expenses-paid trip to Walt Disney World® for children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families is lovingly referred to as the initiation into our supportive community. Following the annual trip, we strive to further strengthen our established friendships and continue to build new bonds, by hosting quarterly Family Reunion Adventures – Spring, Summer, Fall and Holiday.
On Sunday, August 1st, nearly 400 Bert’s Big Adventure family members safely gathered for a VIP experience at Zoo Atlanta for our annual Summer Family Reunion Adventure fueled by Gas South! Unforgettable evenings like this are invaluable to the 250 families that Bert’s Big Adventure serves.
We shared delcious individually packaged dinner boxes and of course, no summer night is complete without dessert! Our families enjoyed a variety of popsicles and ice cream! What could be better than eating a sweet treat and hanging out with your new four-legged besties?!
We never let our families leave empty-handed. Plus, you can’t leave the zoo without a souvenir! Every family member received an awesome Bert’s Big Adventure bucket hat! It was truly the perfect accessory to complete their safari transformations!
A huge thank you to Zoo Atlanta! Thank you for providing such a fun and interactive environment for our families! And, thank you to Angelica Hale for coming to the Family Reunion last night to meet some of our Bert’s Big Adventure kiddos! You are the sweetest!
