#RSMBgivesback ::

If you have been to our events before, you know that we always choose a charity to highlight. We think it is especially necessary to show our children the importance of casa_v_BatonRouge_LA_redblue_R_altgiving back to their community. We have chosen Capital Area CASA which stands for Court Appointed Special Advocate. Serving East Baton Rouge Parish, Capital Area CASA recruits, trains and supervises community volunteers who serve speak up for abused and neglected children to help them reach forever families. CASA always needs volunteers in order to continue serving every child who needs a voice. No special background is required. The next volunteer training course begins July 19. Learn more at or call 225-379-8598. The following school supply items are suggested: pens, pencils, highlighters, markers, cap erasers, composition notebooks, one-subject notebooks, plastic pocket folders, index cards, loose leaf paper, glue sticks, crayons,  coloring books, ruler (inches/centimeters) and pen/pencil bags.


Photography Sponsor ::


We are so excited to have TahJah Harmony, the creative behind Quaint+Whim, a professional lifestyle Baton Rouge area photographer on hand to capture all of the fun! After the event, usually within 5-7 days, we will load the pictures on Facebook for you to enjoy!

We encourage you to share all of the fun and compliment these wonderful companies via social media! Feel free to tag your posts and follow along using #RSMBevents!

Ericka P.
Ericka is originally a New Orleans gal who was raised to begin many dishes with a roux. Since 2011, she has happily embraced the Red Stick life with her husband of seven years, Tyler. Although she met her husband at an LSU game after her car broke down, they both attended Northwestern State University where she graduated with a Business Administration degree. After graduation, she and Tyler took a leap of faith and tied the knot. She dabbled in the corporate scene but eventually returned to school to pursue her passion for teaching and earned a Master’s degree in Elementary Education. She taught at an inner-city school in Baton Rouge for 3 years where she gained a family of students and colleagues alike. She’s traded in her beloved Expo pens and clipboard to stay home with her sweet and adventurous one-year-old son, Cullen. She is so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the sisterhood of fellow moms. Motherhood has been the best roller coaster she’s ever been on and even at the most challenging times, she tries to remember to embrace the chaos and “bless this mess” mentality. Ericka loves a good conversation, coffee, empowering other women {because we can all use a little encouragement}, laughing, baking and making memories with her family.
