Alabama’s cooking phenomenon and internet sensation, Brenda Gantt is the guest speaker of “Barbeque with Brenda,” a fundraiser for the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Shelby County. All funds will remain local to assist abused and neglected children in Shelby County.
Meet Brenda Sunday, October 24 at 1:30 p.m. at The Grand Hall at Old Mill Square in Columbiana, Ala. (adjacent to the Shelby County Arts Center). “There is limited seating for the event, and we expect a sell-out crowd” said CASA Director, Beth Chapman. “I encourage people to order their tickets as soon as possible.”
Famous for her homemade biscuits, downhome southern cooking and love for her faith and family, Gantt became an internet sensation during the COVID-19 pandemic. She began posting cooking videos from her home kitchen at the request of young husbands in her church for their wives to learn to cook biscuits. Since that time, Gantt has posted hundreds of videos and garnered more than 2 million followers and even more views on Facebook. She has appeared on national television shows; the cover of multiple magazines- including Birmingham Christian Family– and her first cookbook is coming out in November.
Gantt is specifically coming to Shelby County to help CASA continue to provide critical services to children in our community. The non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization works to prevent child abuse and neglect, recruits and trains volunteers to go through the court process with abused and neglected children and provides parenting classes and supervised visitation for children in need. CASA is the only organization of its kind in Shelby County. CASA is funded in part by the Children’s Trust Fund of Alabama, a Shelby County Community Grant and other generous donors throughout the county and state, www.casaofshelbycounty.org.

Corporate or Individual tables with reserved seating for 8 are available for $500 without photos and $1,000 tables are reserved seating for 8 and everyone gets a photo with Brenda.
