A Divine Event Donates A $75,000 Wedding

Once a year The Bert Show on Atlanta's Q100 radio station promotes a charity event called "Bert's Big Adventure". Bert's Big Adventure gives children with chronic or terminal disease an all expenses paid first class trip to Walt Disney World for an entire week. This auction raises the money required to take each child's family as well as a medical team to care for the children during the trip. As the featured Live Auction item, we raised a substantial sum for the special families of Bert's Big Adventure. First For the past two years, the Country Club of Roswell has held live and silent auctions in order to raise money to contribute to this charity. This year A Divine Event and Little Gardens were pleased to participate for the second year by donating a wedding package valued at $75,000 for their Featured Live Auction. Together with our vendors, we donated the following services to make one special bride's wedding dreams come true: -Seated Served dinner at Little Gardens, one of Magic Moments' award-winning venues -Catering by A Divine Event -Top Shelf Full Premium bar -Wedding Gown, Groom's Tuxedo, Bridesmaids dresses and Groomsmen Tuxedo's by Savvi Formalwear -Customized Wedding Cake by For Goodness Cakes -Custom designed linens by Cover-Ups Linens and Decor Equipment by Accent Decor -Invitations by Swoozies -DJ and Entertainment Services by Black Tie Events -Hair and Makeup by Raney O'Keefe -Professional Photography Package by Blume Photography -Limousine services by Cooper-Atlanta Transportation -Floral décor package up to a $20,000 value designed by A Divine Event's Design Studio with flowers donated by Van's, EKI, Rose Bazaar and Cut Flower. Second The auction took place on August 17, 2013 at the Country Club of Roswell. The highest bidding couple, Ashley Perkins and Andy Knutson, won the featured auction for $28,000, with all proceeds going to Bert's Big Adventure. Their wedding took place at Little Gardens on July 24, 2014. "Giving away a fully inclusive wedding such as this is something that you see on Oprah but not every day in Atlanta," says Nicole Hufnagel, Event Designer at A Divine Event. "When I heard about it on the radio, I knew right away that it was something A Divine Event would want to be a part of. When I presented the idea to the rest of our team, everyone was on board immediately. What a wonderful opportunity it has been to be involved with this project from its conception. To be honest, I am blown away at the generosity of all of the vendors that have donated their services to bring this vision to life. It is truly an honor to have been the catalyst in something so rewarding." Third After a wonderful experience with such an honorable charity, A Divine Event is sure to be instrumental in other great causes for our community in the near future.
