Family Service of the Piedmont will host its fourth annual Jamestown Pig Pickin’, featuring popular beach music band The Embers, on Aug. 10, from 7 to 11 p.m.
The event is returning for the fourth year to the historical Magnolia Farm, the Jamestown home of George and Jenny Ragsdale on E. Main Street, with free parking at Jamestown United Methodist Church.
The outdoor, casual event will feature all-you-can-eat barbecued pork and chicken, with Southern sides and desserts.
In addition to the music, professional shaggers will be on hand to help those interested in learning a few dance moves.
Attendees will also have a chance to bid on items from local merchants in a silent auction and a live auction led by a professional auctioneer.
Admission to this fundraising event is $50 per person, which includes all food and beverages. All proceeds will go to Family Service of the Piedmont.
The event is open to the public, but space is limited.
