About PiggyPalooza 2019
Thursday, October 24th, 2019, was the swine-est day! What made PiggyPalooza so fun? Well, of course, it starts with the food…
- Sam Jones of Sam Jones BBQ and James Beard Award winner pitmaster Rodney Scott of Rodney Scott’s BBQ out of Charleston provided the perspective on what makes great BBQ.
- Duskie Estes, The Queen of Pork and Food Network’s creator of Black Pig Bacon & Waffles, flew in from Sonoma to prepare the feast.
- Our exclusive caterer, Mulino Italian Kitchen & Bar’s own Samad Hachby brought cuisine to surprise and delight.
- Locals Seafood, always a crowd favorite, served their delicious oysters as an appetizer.
Let’s not forget what makes the night meaningful, wine and tequila! Triangle Wine Experience brought their “A Game” for this party, we’re talking the triumvirate…
Entertainment was provided by the Jordan Lake Swimmers, a new time string band that plays Americana style music.
All Proceeds Benefitted the Frankie Lemon School & Developmental Center
