While National Pi Day on March 14 has been observed in many ways due to a pun based on the words “pi” and “pie” being homophones in English, the Blossom Center for Childhood Excellence has planned a unique way to celebrate Pi Day by doing what else? Having a fundraiser selling delicious homemade pies baked by Blossom’s Angels for everyone to take home to enjoy.
The pie sale was the brainchild of one of the Angels (also knows as the fund development team) to raise money to help support Blossom Center for Childhood Excellence while also helping the community learn more about programs available to families.
A variety of pies including key lime will be available for purchase for $25 each at Blossom Center for Childhood Excellence on Pi Day, Wednesday, March 14, between 3 and 6 p.m. Advance orders can made between March 5 and 14 by calling (865) 294-4233 or by email to [email protected]. (Please put “pie” on the subject line.) Blossom is located at 280 Royce Circle (across from Willow Brook Elementary School) in Oak Ridge.
Blossom Center for Childhood Excellence offers excellent child centered programs that are affordable and accessible seven days a week to all families, thus closing the gap in Oak Ridge between what working higher and lower income parents can provide to enhance their children’s learning, a press release said. The nonprofit 501(c) 3 organization provides care for children 1 through 12 years. The center is open 20 hours a day; from 5 a.m. to 1 a.m. Currently 48 children are enrolled. More information about BCCE can be found on line at blossom24-7.org or by calling (865) 294-4133.
