To celebrate the UVA Cavaliers’ triumph in the 2019 NCAA Tournament Championship, and in recognition of Piedmont CASA’s 25th Anniversary, Jimmy Miller is moving the 7th annual Bracket Breakfast to an evening event at The Paramount Theater.
The Bracket Blast will begin at 7:00PM on Monday, March 16th. Hundreds of basketball enthusiasts will fill the theater for a night of behind-the-scenes tournament stories and inside tips on how things are shaping up for March Madness 2020.
UVA President Jim Ryan is returning as a panelist, along with local basketball fan and author, John Grisham, Cavalier basketball legend, Barry Parkhill, and Macon “The Squid” Gunter, Chief Statistician for the UVA Sports Network. Caroline Darney of Streaking the Lawn is also joining the “Bracket Blast”, along with more special guests to be announced closer to the event.
By popular demand, the “Magic Man” will again demonstrate how he got his name. Returning to host the Bracket Blast are David Koehn, UVA Director of Broadcasting and Voice of the Cavaliers, and Rachel Ryan, Newsplex Anchor and Reporter.
At the end of the evening, guests can sign up for the online bracket tournament. There will be tournament prizes, raffles, and a silent auction.
It’s all for the benefit of Piedmont CASA – Court Appointed Special Advocates. The children and youth they serve are victims of child abuse and neglect, and range in age from newborn to 21. Local judges appoint Piedmont CASA Volunteers to represent the best interests of hundreds of these youngsters each year.
