The First Columbus Pig Jig Champions Barbecue Fundraiser for Richards Middle School PTA will be May 8-9.
Fran Hall Kerce, who was the Riverfest Weekend Pig Jig Cookoff coordinator for the Historic Columbus Foundation, went through her Rolodex and called all her barbecue-cooking friends for this fundraiser.
Unlike the Pig Jig when the general public could not taste the champions' barbecue, you can buy pork butts, baby-back ribs, sandwiches, ribs and chicken plates, all to benefit the PTA.
The barbecue will be next to the school's cafeteria on the Sue Mack Drive side May 8-9. Bring lawn chairs and blankets to eat and listen to music on Friday night.
May 8: 3:15-9 p.m.: Pick up orders; bake sale begins 4:30-9 p.m.: Pork sandwich, rib and chicken plates for sale 5 p.m.: Hardaway Jazz Band performs
May 9: 8 a.m.-1 p.m.: Pick up orders
To place orders, call Kerce at 706-527-6804 or go to Richards, where the Pig Pounda Kappa trailer will be at the school all next week.
