The City Beautiful is going hog wild! The Coral Gables Community Foundation is introducing a new fundraising initiative to the community this fall. On September 10th, 2014, the Foundation will launch the Piggy Bank Campaign, created to raise awareness for the funds administered by the Foundation and as an opportunity to “bring home the bacon” for those funds.
How does it work? Coral Gables merchants will host piggy banks at their business locations. Each piggy bank is painted by an art student from Coral Gables Senior High School and will be dedicated and painted with the theme of a specific fund. A plaque with the fund’s name will accompany each piggy bank stating that collections from that pig support the fund, which is administered by the Coral Gables Community Foundation.
Below is a list of participating funds and their business locations. Every time you spot a pig (and make a contribution, of course!), post a photo to Facebook or Instagram using #SpotThePigCG. Whoever posts the most photos of themselves making a contribution to the pigs by November 10th will win a dinner for two at Swine Southern Table & Bar! The Piggy Bank Campaign is scheduled to launch tomorrow and run through December.
