The 2019 Bert’s Big Adventure families arrived to the Renaissance Concourse Atlanta Airport Hotel in style, courtesy of Cooper Global Transportation, to kickoff the first day of their once-in-a-lifetime magical journey! The Jonesboro High School Drumline added even more excitement by performing as the families walked the red carpet!

Upon arrival, the kiddos were surprised with a custom set of Mickey ears crafted and created by Ears of Magic by Brooke and featuring some of their favorite characters! The 2019 family members gathered to mingle and dine on a delicious meal from Jersey Mike’s Subs followed by a Haagen-Dazs ice cream social. And of course there had to be music!

The Bert’s Big Adventure kids were entertained with music and karaoke by DJ Scott Moody from LOKD Entertainment!

SURPRISE! Right before bedtime, Bert made three major announcements! Mattress Firm generously donated two mattresses and two box springs to each Bert’s Big Adventure family! Dentistry for Children and Family Orthodontics donated one set of braces to each Bert’s Big Adventure kiddo in the Atlanta and Charleston areas. Eco Tech Services, Northwest Georgia’s Surface Cleaning Specialists, is donating a carpet cleaning service to each of our Georgia-based families!

Last but not least, THANK YOU to the Renaissance Concourse Atlanta Airport Hotel! The hotel donates all of our event spaces, along with an overnight stay for every Bert’s Big Adventure family!
