An Evening Uncorked

Appropriately held at Vinotecca in Birmingham, “An Evening Uncorked,” a Pierce Elementary School Benefit was attended by 140 Pierce Elementary School parents to raise funds for the beautification of the school’s courtyard. Festivities included a California wine tasting, an online auction and music. The successful community-building event, which was co-chaired by Pierce parents Kelly Guffey and Janelle Boyce, raised $26,000.
