A Child’s Place is pleased to announce that the 7th Annual A Swine Evening will be held on Saturday, May 31, 2014 from 7 p.m.-10:30 p.m. at the Renaissance Charlotte Suites Hotel. Please check our website often. We are updating the piggy banks, packages and sponsors almost daily.
During A Swine Evening, ceramic piggy banks autographed by local and national celebrities are auctioned with a package that includes items related to the celebrity. Most of the 90 plus piggy banks are sold in our silent auction. These include 20 piggy banks from our greatest celebrities – our client children. A handful of banks and packages are sold by live auction near the end of the event.

A Child’s Place was blown away by the success of 2013 A Swine Evening. We raised more than $255,000 for our homeless client children! That is more than $60,000 raised last year! Planning has already begun for next year’s event and there are still plenty of ways you can help. Know a local or national celebrity? Ask them to sign a piggy bank. Are you a business owner? Donate a fabulous package to pair with one of our piggy banks. We’ve got plenty more ideas on how you can make 2014 A Swine Evening another record-setting year. Give us a call at 704-343-3790 to learn more!

“WOW” is about the only word that even remotely conveys how I am feeling about Saturday night’s event. I am humbled by and grateful for the generosity of our community in support of our children. We totally blew out our goal of $200K and raised over $255K! On behalf of the kids we serve and from the bottom of my heart, thank you!
