Can you believe it is nearly August already? The summer is absolutely flying by and that means it is almost time for the much anticipated 2012 Pig Picking! This year marks the 33rd Annual Pig Picking fundraiser for the Sandbridge Volunteer Rescue Squad. Pig Picking is scheduled for September 8 at Little Island Park from 1:00-5:00 pm with no rain date.
At last year’s event over $60,000 was raised for the Sandbridge Volunteer Rescue Squad. The Rescue Squad uses these funds to keep their equipment up to date and to maintain their training and qualifications.
If you have not ever been to the Pig Pickin’ before, check out these pictures! A $35 ticket to the event buys you all the delicious BBQ you can eat and beverages you can drink. You will also get to listen live music, browse crafts booths and there will be entertainment for the kids. Children 10 and under get in free.
Sponsor contributions attribute for more than 60% of the rescue squad’s annual operating expenses. Property owners are encouraged to become sponsors of the Pig Picking event. For $100 you receive 2 Pig Picking tickets, 2 badges, and recognition in the Pig Picking program. $60 of this amount is tax deductible.
