April 1-30: Pinwheel Garden Planting
Throughout April, we’re filling our county with blue pinwheels, the national symbol of a happy childhood. We’d love for you to join us as we plant pinwheel gardens in honor of Buncombe County’s children! Your garden will be a vibrant reminder that all children deserve to have happy, healthy childhoods, and the proceeds of your garden will go towards minimizing the impacts of child abuse in Buncombe County and reducing its occurrence.

Thank you to Deerfield Retirement Community, North Asheville Preschool, and Beverly Hanks and Associates for already purchasing 50 or more pinwheels for their gardens!
April 17: Tourist Baseball Game
Join us as we cheer on the Tourists and increase awareness on April 17! We’ll be there handing out pinwheels and information about how to prevent and end child abuse, and Geoff Sidoli, our Executive Director, will even throw out the opening pitch! For location and ticket information, click here.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, and here at Mountain Child Advocacy Center, our goal for April is to increase awareness of the need for child abuse prevention and to highlight the ways everyone can help make sure all kids in Buncombe County have the childhood they deserve. We have a full roster of events in April to help us celebrate kids, from a Tourists ball game, to planting gardens of blue pinwheels, to our annual Compassion for Children breakfast and fundraiser. More information about each of our events is included below. We hope to see you out and about next month, celebrating happy, healthy children!
