our celebration.
Beloved Family!

Well, the Brinkley family is at it again, this time we are working to make it bigger than ever before! With 40 years under our belts and several new babies in the family, the tree just keeps on growing! What a year it has been, as I’m sure you can all say the same. I really hope to see all of your smiling faces in Atlanta, GA!

As you’re aware, this will be our 40th annual family reunion, and you can’t have a family reunion without the entire family! So I hope this is enough notice for you all to plan accordingly. I know last year the Philly planning committee raised money through selling dinners and raffles to help defray some of the activity cost.

I am working to set-up a donations site to help support some of the planned activities to reduce cost during the reunion. For example, what if we did a fundraiser (online raffles) monthly/bi-monthly with possible round-trip airline ticket, free night in hotel, amazon gift certificates.

This year’s reunion will be held in sunny Atlanta, GA from July 18th – 21st, 2019. Should you require lodging, we have reserved a block of rooms at a great rate of  $139 King Room and $149 Double Room at the Renaissance Atlanta Midtown Hotel in the heart of the city.

The weekend activities are still being finalized but will include a welcome reception on the Rooftop of Community South, visits to the world-renowned GA Aquarium and National Center for Civil and Human Rights, Brinkley Yacht Party with stops on the beautiful Lanier Islands and a sendoff workshop service by Pastor Andy Stanley at Buckhead Church.     

We are estimating activities costs for the entire weekend between ~$170 - $190 per adult (kids 12 and under will be less) which includes, family reunion t-shirt, entry into the aquarium and museum, catering costs (Thursday, Friday and Saturday), as well as transportation to/from activities. This does not include any funds raised through raffles, donations, and fundraisers. The more funds raised through fundraising efforts prior to the reunion the more we could reduce the per person cost.

Should you wish to volunteer to help with the events, please contact Tiffany DeVaughn for information. We are also collecting pictures so please use the website to post past reunion pictures of the family under the photo album tab. As always, thank you for being a part of this family and I cannot wait to see you all in the "A" this year!

Kind Regards,
