Pig-n-Pints: Fundraiser & Pig Roast
What is PIG-N-PINTS?
Pig-N-Pints is an annual fundraising event held each fall by Groundswell Center for Local Food and Farming. We host a pig roast and silent auction at a local farm/brewery which is free to attend and open to the public. The proceeds from our silent auction, food sales and sponsorship benefit our Beginning Farmer Training programs and help to support a diverse, resilient local food system in the Finger Lakes region.
Pig-n-Pints is family-friendly, open to the public, and free to attend. We provide live music, activities such as cider-pressing demonstrations, cider and beer tastings, face-painting and marshmallow roasting.
Who comes to PIG-N-PINTS?
In 2015 there were over 200 attendees from around the Finger Lakes region.
How do you promote PIG-N-PINTS?
In 2015, we promoted the event online, on the radio, in print (posters & flyers) and via social media. As a sponsor, your name and logo would be included in many of these promotions for 2016.
Sponsorship of Pig-n-Pints is an opportunity not only to support our local food and farming community, but to also affiliate your business with like-minded individuals and organizations that want to support you!
