Event Chairs Kristy and Michael Robson welcomed hundreds of black-tie guests to the annual Big Splash event to benefit the Marcus Autism Center. Flapper chic was the dress code and entertainment included Limelight’s 9- piece band ensemble, professional ballroom dancers, gaming tables, a gourmet feast by Wolfgang Puck and a luxury auction. Among the auction prizes: A Tuscan Dinner for Ten and Billi and Bernie Marcus’ home with four –course meal with wine pairings from Davio’s, an exclusive Dolphin Encounter Experience, and two passes to the 2013 Masters Golf Tournament. The evening, which took place amid the big fish tanks of the Georgia Aquarium, honored Helen and Jimmy Carlos for their many years of dedication to the children of Marcus Autism Center founded by Bernie Marcus (who also founded the Georgia Aquarium).
