Day 1 – February 19, 2014 – Arrival at Sheraton Gateway Hotel Atlanta Airport

The 2014 Bert’s Big Adventure families all gathered at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel Atlanta Airport after traveling from their homes in the Atlanta area, Charleston, Washington, D.C. and Lubbock, TX, markets. The families all arrived in style, courtesy of the limos and luxury buses provided by Cooper-Global Transportation, Inc.

The families enjoyed a big welcome from volunteers; even some knights and other royalty from Medieval Times joined in on the fun. Thank you to Jersey Mike’s Subs and Haagen-Dazs for donating dinner and dessert, and to Tutu-riffic for making the dinner so special by contributing personalized tutus and capes to the kiddos. Also, a special thank you to Dentistry for Children and Family Orthodontics for sending Luna the Tooth Fairy, who performed an educational magic show for all of the kids. Can’t wait for tomorrow!

Last but never least, thanks to our photographers, including Rustic White Photography, Sarah Esther Photography and Cassandra Young Photography.
