PCASA Volunteer Picnic

This is our first Volunteer Picnic since 2014 – so don’t miss it! Bring your partner and meet other PCASA Volunteers. We’ll have Meriwether Springs completely to ourselves – so there will be plenty of room for social distancing, both inside and outside.

Curious Cake Auction

October 1-28, 2020. Seven superb bakers each created one Curious Cake for Halloween. Gearharts Fine Chocolates, MarieBette Café & Bakery, Albemarle Baking Company, Cake Bloom, HotCakes Gourmet, Paradox Pastry, and Passionflower Cakes all concocted magic. It was a delicious reprieve from the pandemic austerity. Best of all, it was all to raise funds for Piedmont CASA and the vulnerable children we serve.

Jimmy "Magic Man" Miller's Bracket Breakfast for Piedmont CASA

Our signature fundraising event since 2014

We weren't able to have Jimmy Miller's Bracket event in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic and sheltering-in-place. So watch out for 2022 -- we have a lot of pent up energy and ideas!

The Bracket Breakfast Committee: Steve Rappaport, Kate Hamilton, Jim Miller, Rick Wampler, Marty Sayler, Bob Sayler, and R. Peter Kilburn.
