Thank You!

The Kid's Choice Playhouse Raffle raised over $30,000 for Piedmont CASA!

Ended May 5, 2023


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

Hundreds of donors purchased 1,107 raffle tickets for $10 each (or 3 tickets for $25). Scroll down to see the eleven businesses who generously sponsored the event and donated construction materials.

"The Look Out" playhouse was designed by Bushman Dreyfus Architects. Peter Johnson Builders built it in our front yard plus delivered it to the winner. 

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

For this event, we partnered with People Places, a local nonprofit providing an array of foster care, adoption, and community-based services. Folks who wanted to participate but did not need a playhouse chose the box that read: "If my raffle ticket wins, please donate "The Look Out" playhouse to a foster family in our community!"

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

Fundraising for the heart of our operations: our office

"The Look Out" playhouse was 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.
