Swine and Dine Dinner & Auction

Thursday, May 12

The Swine & Dine Annual Fundraiser features a BBQ buffet dinner, live music by Dirty Logic, and auctions—both live and silent. It’s a fun and memorable event, raising money for 16 local charities.  We are excited to bring this event back after a two year break.  This event combined with our Annual Charity Golf Classic, ART Shop sale and individual donations has helped us raise and donate over $1.4 Million to local charities since 2006.  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 • $40/person

The silent auction features many handcrafted items 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 fine wine.

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!
