TIN LIZZY’S DELIVERS DISNEY DREAMS THROUGH PARTNERSHIP
WITH BERT’S BIG ADVENTURE
Atlanta’s Favorite FlexMex Cantina Matching Donations During Feb. 8-29 Fundraiser
ATLANTA (Feb. 1, 2016) – A “Little Give” goes a long way. That’s the Tin Lizzy’s Cantina philosophy during an upcoming fundraiser to contribute dollars as well as delight to Bert’s Big Adventure. Starting Feb. 8 through Feb. 29, customers and Bert's Big Adventure supporters are encouraged to make a contribution online at bertsbigadventure.org to the “Little Give” campaign. During this time, Tin Lizzy’s will match contributions dollar for dollar.
Throughout the past seven years, Tin Lizzy’s has supported the Atlanta-based nonprofit, which sends children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families to Walt Disney World, through in-restaurant Cinco de Mayo celebrations, limited-time menu promotions and more.
“Families with children that have chronic and/or terminal illnesses so seldom get a break,” says Tin Lizzy's CEO Tory Bartlett. “What Bert’s Big Adventure provides is more than just a breather from their everyday challenges; it’s the adventure of a lifetime for so many of these children. When I see pictures of these families smiling and laughing together, I find it impossible not to smile myself.”
Bert’s Big Adventure co-founder Bert Weiss can’t help but smile, too, at the passion that Tin Lizzy’s demonstrates for the philanthropy. “In order to help these families, we need support from the community,” he says. “We refer to Tin Lizzy’s as a Magic Maker Partner with good reason – they are indeed making magic happen. We are endlessly grateful.”
