828’s Pi Day Charity Fun-raiser

In honor of the never-ending magic of Pi (3.14…), 828 Real Estate is hosting a Pi Day Charity Fun-raiser to show our never-ending support to our local charities!

We will be using the ‘pie-launcher’ from the game ‘Pie Face.’ Each click of the handle brings the pie closer to launch. It could take three clicks or ten clicks- we don’t know until we play. (Not familiar with “Pie Face”? Watch a tutorial by clicking here.)  The premise is similar to the traditional dunk tanks- except we are using pie! For every $5 donation, will earn a click to an agent of your choice, make multiple donations to increase their chances of getting creamed. 

Example: If you send in a $15 donation for Sarah Long, she will have to click pie launcher 3 times.



Although we’ll have all the fun, all donations collected will be shared amongst the Western Youth Network, MountainTrue, and EDGE: Education for Girls Empowerment charities.


How to Donate:

Please, send in your donations and the name of your 828 Real Estate Agent (who you want to get a pie to the face) by  March 13th, 2022.

You can send donations via Venmo at @RealEstate_828 or scan the QR code below. Don’t have Venmo and don’t want to miss out on the fun? No worries!

Call our office at 828-386-6047 or email [email protected]


Watch live on 3.14.2022, AKA ‘Pi Day’ to see who gets creamed. 

We will be broadcasting this event LIVE on Facebook at noon on 3.14.2022. Click here to RSVP to our event.

Drop a comment during the live feed to show some love, and we will enter your name for a chance to win a gift card to Stick Boy Bakery.

About the Author

Shalamar Blevins grew up in Ashe County, right next to the North Fork of the New River. Shalamar loves the outdoors after spending most of her life kayaking and hiking in her own front yard. 

Throughout her life, Shalamar tried to learn every art form she could get her hands on, from ceramics to African Batiking! Being creative and adding a splash of lively color is Shalamar’s superpower. After studying the classic mediums from local masters such as Stephen Shoemaker and Lenore DePree, Shalamar attended the North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston- Salem before attending UNC-Asheville. After graduating in 2011, Shalamar spent time traveling through Europe and Asia before moving back to the North Carolina High Country to start her own studio and to work for Florence Thomas Art School.

To this day Shalamar still loves to travel and hosts small art classes on location and at festivals. She joined the 828 Real Estate gang in the fall of 2021. Since then, she has been working diligently to provide their agents and clients with the latest marketing tools, while celebrating the adventures that await in the 828! Shalamar got married to wonderful fellow Ashe County native, Micheal the summer of 2021. Micheal is a 13 year US Army Veteran, recently graduated from Nursing school and just started a career at Watauga Medical. They have 2 fur babies, an Australian Shepherd named Quill and Chocolate Lab named Brody. These boys keep Mike and Shalamar on their toes!

 When Mike and Shalamar aren’t working on their garden and home improvement ventures, they love spending time with their big family and friends while exploring the local music and art scene of NC High Country!
