Bert’s Big Adventure (www.bertsbigadventure.org) is dedicated to providing a magical all-expenses-paid, five-day journey to Walt Disney World for children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families. Bert’s Big Adventure prides itself on creating programs and fostering a community that goes beyond the five-day trip. Following the annual trip to Walt Disney World, the organization provides year-round support through initiatives such as the Reunion Adventures, the Fairy Godparent volunteer program and additional charitable services. Bert’s Big Adventure was co-founded by Bert Weiss of the popular Charleston-area morning show, The Bert Show on 95SX.
In the past four years, the Pro/Am has raised more than $15,000 for area cancer patients and the American Cancer Society.
“This tournament was founded to support the Charleston community and we are excited to see magic being made on behalf of Bert’s Big Adventure in 2017,” said Brad Parker, PGA, General Manager of Patriots Point. “It is an honor to work with such a fantastic and beloved organization.”
The cost to participate is $220 per player for the competition, with cart, greens fees, food and beverages included. Each participant will also receive a player’s tee gift.

In addition to the funds raised to assist cancer patients, the tournament has offered more than $15,000 in prizes to players.
