Jimmy "Magic Man" Miller's Bracket Breakfast raised $66,000 for the children and youth served by Piedmont CASA

It was an amazing morning. Folks started arriving before 7 am and by 7:30, the room was packed with hundreds of basketball fans who came for the Magic Man's March Madness event - his first live Bracket Breakfast since 2019.

The panelists were UVA President Jim Ryan, acclaimed novelist John Grisham, Co-Host of the Greenlight Podcast Macon Gunter, and managing editor of BetFTW Caroline Darney. NBC29 Anchor Steve Rappaport and UVA Director of Broadcasting John Freeman were the emcees.

But the star of the morning was one of our own: Stephen Perry, a young man in our Bridges to Success program. Stephen gave a moving speech about what his CASA Volunteer and Bridges Coach mean to him. The standing ovation was spontaneous.

You can hear Stephen's speech on our YouTube Channel.
