About The Charity Pig Roast
The Charity Pig Roast is a 501 (c)(3) organization that does an annual benefit for the under-privileged children in the Gadsden and Etowah County AL area at Christmas. The CPR has been around since it was started by a bunch of RIVER RATS in 1984 with founders Doug & Gail Hill.
The Original Pig Roast was at Minnesota Bend, an old favorite gathering place in the middle of the Coosa River only accessible by boat and ever since the Charity Pig Roast has become an major annual event for Northeast Alabama.
Originally, a ''Pig Roast'', the annual event now includes everything from the standard BBQ to ''Live Entertainment'' both Saturday night and Sunday along with an annual ''Charity Ride'' for motorcycle riders. This is a fun event in itself that brings additional ''Charity'' revenue to the cause of the Charity Pig Roast.
The Charity Pig Roast has been helping to bring Christmas to over 14,000 of Etowah County's needy children through the years. It is because of the generosity of so many people that this vision of just a handful of people has been able to make the dreams of so many children come true!
Without the help of all the sponsors and volunteers this charity would not be able to provide the gifts to all these children. The Charity Pig Roast appreciates any donation to this non-profit organization.
We continually are thankful for your support!
