Pigstock

In a play on the name of  has become a real money generating fundraiser for the Children of Vietnam charity.  This year saw perfect weather with temperature near 30C and not a cloud in the sky.  Eight Rotary clubs in the Greensboro, North Carolina area competed for best barbecue awards given in 4 food categories. In this part of the world, barbecue is taken SERIOUSLY, and barbecue competitions bring out masses of people who want to enjoy the food … and the music!  This year 700 tickets were sold, each at $30.  With the profit from that, and over $30,000 raised from “People’s Choice Award” donations, the Vietnam Global Grant for which Rotary e-Club Of NextGen is acting as “host,” has gotten off to a fantastic start.  Go Rotary!!!
