Once a year, Bert’s Big Adventure provides a magical, all-expenses-paid, five-day journey to Walt Disney World for children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families.
The celebration marked the close of a two-week contest, in which 15 tenants of Colony Square decorated 18 trees.
Participants were encouraged to get creative with their trees, and many sported a Disney theme to correlate with the concept of Bert’s Big Adventure.
People were invited to vote for their favorite tree, with a $1 donation requested for each vote and no limit to the number of times a person could vote.
The trees were auctioned off at the Trim a Tree for Charity Celebration, hosted by Q100’s, Bert Weiss, and his wife, executive director for Bert’s Big Adventure, Stacey Weiss.
Located in the heart of Midtown at the intersection of 12th Street and Peachtree, Colony Square is the city’s original mixed-use complex. Built in the early 70s, Colony Square is comprised of two towering offices buildings and a residential building, with Midtown’s W Hotel attached to the complex’s connecting atrium.
