Swine and Dine Charitable Foundation 501 (c)(3) Annual Fundraiser

Fun, food, fundraising to benefit local charities

More than 200 Reserve at Lake Keowee members gather annually to support The Reserve Charitable Foundation’s charities. This year’s event is Monday, September 30, 2019.

The Swine & Dine features a catered BBQ themed dinner, music & exciting live & silent auctions:

  • The silent auction features many handcrafted items by talented members, as well as items donated by local businesses.
  • The live auction is a lively event featuring creative experiences up for bid—including themed dinners, trips, special packages and other adventures.
  • The Pick a Pig raffle awards attendees a bottle of wine—all worth more than the price of the ticket, and a few worth significantly more!

Since 2008 The Reserve Charitable Foundation has hosted this event—and to date raised more than $860,000. Supported by the Reserve Members Club and scores of member volunteers, this year’s outreach recipients that will receive proceeds this year include:

  • Feed a Hungry Child
