Bluebird Parade
During the First Friday ArtWalk on May 4, there will be a Bluebird Parade on the Downtown Mall - one bluebird to represent each child in foster care in our community. Right now, that number is approximately 247. 
     
The Parade Route
On Friday, the flock of Bluebirds will be displayed on the lawn in front of Piedmont CASA. At 5:00, there will be a brief talk before launching the flock at 5:30. The Parade will head to the Sprint Pavilion, then fly down to the Omni Hotel end of the mall and back, finally landing at CitySpace.

How bluebirds are fundraising for foster kids
  
SILENT AUCTION 
Up to 30 bluebird works of art will be in a silent auction that will be held on the same date as the Bluebird Parade: May 4.
    
The collection will be on display at CitySpace as part of the First Fridays ArtWalk on May 4. 
      
Any funds raised will go toward helping children in foster care by training and supporting foster care families, and by giving foster children a voice in court through the advocacy work of CASA Volunteers. Funds will be equally divided between the  and the Foster Care Adoption Awareness Coalition (FCAAC) 
 
BLUEBIRD ART WITH DONATION
Hundreds of bluebirds will be in the May 4 Parade on the downtown mall and will then land at CitySpace, where the Silent Auction is being held. 
     
Anyone who stops by CitySpace on May 4 and makes a donation to the Foster Care Adoption and Awareness Coalition can select a bluebird.
