Pig 'n a Raffle!
A BBQ Pig Pickin' & Raffle event!
Our first annual Pig 'n a Raffle was a wonderful success raising over $20,000 that will be given to Granville County Public Schools in the form of teacher grants, cultural arts programs, and literacy initiatives.
The BBQ Pig Pickin', catered by Ted Wheeler, was held on Friday, May 1st, 2015 at the Granville County Shrine Club. Over 200 tickets were sold. Ticket purchases enabled participants to take part in a raffle for a variety of prizes, ranging from technologies to gift certificates and cash prizes.
Feature items (valued at least $500) included:
More than $6,000 in cash and items were donated to the raffle by local businesses and individuals.

As a unique spin to the traditional raffle, anyone winning a prize had their ticket re-submitted into the drawing, so there was a chance to go home with more than one prize. Additional raffle tickets were available for purchase throughout the event. A 50/50 raffle was held also, and over 600 tickets were sold.
Mr. L.C. Adcock, former superintendent of Granville County Schools, was present with the 2015 Harris Family Education Award for his dedicated service to education in Granville County. The award was presented by Lee Isley of Granville Health System. A tree will be planted in his honor at the Granville County Schools Central Office.
Thank you to all who supported the event! We look forward to growing this event in the coming years and hope to have your continued support! Stay tuned for information on 2016 Pig 'n a Raffle!
