Swine and Dine Dinner & Auction

Monday, September 30

The Swine & Dine Annual Fundraiser features a BBQ buffet dinner, music, and auctions—both live and silent. It’s a fun and memorable event, raising money for ten local charities.  Since 2008 The Reserve Charitable Foundation has hosted this event along with the Golf Classic—and to date raised more than $860,000. This event would not be possible without the support of Reserve Members, committee members and volunteers!

For more information or to make a donation to the Swine & Dine, Contact Becky Gilstrap, Executive Director of Community & Charitable Foundations at 864-481-4010 or email foundation@reservekeowee.com

Event Details

BBQ Buffet • Music • Live & Silent Auctions • $35/person

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 awards attendees a bottle of wine—all worth more than the price of the ticket, and a few worth significantly more!


Auction items/packages will be available for preview in early September.
