Pass the Pigs Competition

Jan 29, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm


On Sunday, January 29, City Barbeque will host its first-ever charitable Pass the Pigs® competition. Contributions from playing a modified version of the classic game— where throwing two small plastic pigs results in a score—will directly benefit local food banks in the area.

City Barbeque has been committed to supporting local food banks for years and works closely with the food distribution experts at Food Rescue. Food Rescue is an organization that helps organize logistics for restaurants and other food service providers to deliver food to local food banks.

City Barbeque estimates that it was able to provide more than 30,000 meals through this program in 2016 alone.

City Barbeque currently has three locations in the Raleigh-Durham area, with a fourth opening early April 2017. Weekly food donations are currently made to Dorcas Ministries, Garner Area Ministries and Inter-Faith Food Shuttle.

During the January 29 competition, guests who donate $5 or more to support each joint’s food bank partner will receive a free Pass the Pigs game set, and donations of any amount will be accepted. The highest scorer in each restaurant will win a $50 gift card, and the highest score across all restaurants will win a $250 gift card. More information about Pass the Pigs gameplay and the day’s competition can be found on the company’s blog at http://www.citybbq.com/blog.

Also on January 29, City Barbeque joints will host “Family Time,” with special offers available throughout the day, including a free kid’s plate with any adult meal purchase or $5 off a Family Pack. No coupon is necessary to redeem these offers; guests need only mention “Family Time” when ordering.

Family Day special events and offers run Sunday, January 29 only. The Pass the Pigs competition will take place between 11 am–4 pm, but all other festivities run throughout the day.
