Kid's Choice Playhouse Raffle for Piedmont CASA


The Look Out Playhouse Finished by Peter Johnson Builders 1000

Congratulations to Belinda Blankenship, winner of "The Look Out" playhouse!

For a $10 raffle ticket (or 3 tickets for $25) some lucky winner will have a fabulous playhouse designed by Bushman Dreyfus Architects - just in time for summer! Peter Johnson Builders - who built "The Look Out" - will deliver the playhouse to your home during the week of May 8-12. Delivery must be within a 30-mile radius of the Piedmont CASA office.

Don't need a playhouse? Donate it to a foster family in our community.

When you get to check out, simply check the box that reads: "If my raffle ticket wins, please donate "The Look Out" playhouse to a foster family in our community!" If your raffle ticket is selected, the playhouse will be donated to a local foster family through our partnership with People Places, a local nonprofit providing an array of foster care, adoption, and community-based services.

With 3 levels, "The Look Out" playhouse is chock full of fun!

Fundraising for the heart of our operations: our office

For the Piedmont CASA team, home means our office, the core of our operations. We work here, we meet here, Volunteers train here, and we are within walking distance of the courthouse. For more than ten years, this house has been filled with commitment, compassion, laughter, anxiety, tears, joy...and hope, always hope!

But right now, we need to take care of our home. So in April, "The Look Out" playhouse will be built in our front yard and raffled off to help raise $30,000 in matching funds for a Perry Foundation grant. This grant is for repairs and upgrades that will ensure 818 East High Street continues to be Piedmont CASA's home, the heart of our work, for decades to come. Read more about the Perry Foundation grant and the work we are doing here.

Join us on our mission to champion and restore children and youth whose lives have been compromised by abuse and neglect.
