On Sunday, September 30th, Bert’s Big Adventure kiddos and their families enjoyed some playful fun at our annual Fall Reunion Adventure — a reunion for the Bert’s Big Adventure community where families from all previous years are invited to join together for a VIP experience!

Thanks to the continued generosity of our hosts, Dentistry for Children and Family Orthodontics, this fall reunion was held at Dave & Busters in Marietta! The families, joined by the Bert’s Big Adventure staff and a handful of volunteers, had a great afternoon enjoying unlimited gaming classics including Pac-Man, Skee-Ball, and Pop-A-Shot, along with other entertainment, and a delicious meal.

Spring Reunion – April 2018

On Sunday, May 6th more than 400 Bert’s Big Adventure family members gathered together to watch the Atlanta Braves vs. the San Francisco Giants at SunTrust Park for the first Family Reunion Adventure of 2018!

The Bert’s Big Adventure families made many new magical memories together, and for some, it was their first time to a professional baseball game.

The Atlanta Braves really know how to be a great partner and host! In addition to a delicious catered lunch in a private ballroom at SunTrust Park, they donated every single ticket for the families. To make things even more exciting, Atlanta Braves players Shane Carl, Sam Freeman, and Jesse Biddle surprised the families after lunch. They took pictures and mingled with the kids.

Thank you so much to the Atlanta Braves for being such a generous host- we had the perfect spring reunion!

And thank you to our partners at Gas South for treating each family member with a Braves-themed baseball hat. We love our new swag!
