At Swoozie’s, we believe giving gifts is even more fun than receiving. Last Wednesday, we ha the opportunity to team up with Stacey Weiss and host an event in-store to benefit Bert’s Big Adventure, an organization that is near and dear to our hearts.
The organization was created by Stacey and her husband Bert Weiss of The Bert Show, a morning radio show based in Atlanta. Together, they founded The B&S Foundation, a non-profit organization which funds the event Bert’s Big Adventure. Bert’s Big Adventure allows children who are physically challenged or suffer from a chronic illness and prove financial need the opportunity to experience a magical weekend at Walt Disney World. The child, their siblings, and parents are flown to Disney World and provided everything they need to enjoy their trip. From hotel accommodations, park passes, transportation to and from the park, meal coupons, and spending cash, everything is covered. Under normal circumstances, this is a trip these families would likely never get to take.
All day Wednesday, anyone who mentioned Bert’s Big Adventure received 10% off their purchase – a portion of which was donated to support the cause. From 6-8 that evening, we all had a blast at the cocktail shopping event! Guests enjoyed a champagne toast with Stacey, food from Endive Catering, cupcakes from Gigi’s, and a performance from Magician Howie the Great.
This was a fabulous event and we are so pleased to support this magical cause!
In addition, Swoozie’s had a table set up in-store for our guests to support The Bert Show’s Big Thank You. The Bert Show’s Big Thank You is an amazing effort to collect 400,000 handwritten thank you letters to send to our troops overseas. Here at Swoozie’s, we not only recognize the sacrifice our troops have made, but we also appreciate the sentiment of a handwritten letter! The deadline to submit a letter is Friday, October 28, 2011. If you would like to compose a handwritten letter, you may drop it off at Swoozie’s of Chastain Square or mail it to:
