The 8th Annual event, presented by the Lenny Peter’s Foundation/Bethany Medical Center of High Point, will feature all-you-can-eat BBQ pork and chicken served by BBQ Joe’s Country Cooking & Catering, southern sides and desserts, beer and wine, and live music by The Castaways. This year’s theme is Swine & Shakespeare: A Pigsummer Night’s Dream.
“This year’s Pig Pickin’ fundraiser for Family Service of the Piedmont at the AdamsLeigh Estate will be an event to remember,” said Chairperson Elizabeth Swaim. “New this year, our Silent Auction features mobile bidding, so be sure to bring your cell phone. And, as always, the aim of this event is to increase awareness of Family Service in Jamestown as well as raise funds to support agency programs to combat child abuse and domestic violence as well as helping with mental health and financial stability.”
Since 2010, the annual Pig Pickin’ has grown in popularity and success. The Silent Auction will offer great deals on more than 100 donated items including four tickets to the first Wake Forest Demon Deacons football home opener, a 14-carat white gold diamond ring from Jamestown Jewelers and a truly unique seatbelt chair from the Phillips Collection. Last year’s event was attended by more than 700 people and raised net proceeds of $100,000 to support programs of Family Service of the Piedmont. Attendees are requested to park at Jamestown United Methodist Church and Sedgefield Presbyterian Church and take shuttles to the estate since there will be no parking on site.
