This Little Piggy Went To The Brunch Market

big pig project and the brunch market


As some of you may know, my brother Luke passed away in 2008. During his hospitalization, the Ronald McDonald House served as a support system and home away from home for my family. The charity has remained close to our hearts ever since, which is why I feel particularly excited and grateful to participate in this month's Brunch Market and Big Pig Project. 

That's right, The Brunch Market is goin' big and puttin' on a block party this weekend to raise money for Richmond's Ronald McDonald House. The festival will feature live music, raffles, hand-painted concrete garden pigs for auction, local vendors market, and of course, barbecue. The mission of the Big Pig Project and Ronald McDonald House is to keep children with illnesses connected with their families during treatment because they believe there is strength in numbers and the support of loved ones. 

When Mac's Smack began, I knew I wanted to use it as a vehicle to bring awareness to philanthropies I feel a special connection with. We believe in the spiritual principal that it is important to give rather than to receive. In our efforts to create a happier and healthier community, we find balance and peace in hopes of spreading love to others. I love that this charity event coincided with our passion for community and shopping local, too! 

You won't want to miss this opportunity to shop local, dine local, and support local. I'll be there with the Mac's Smack team sharing our goods and enjoying some bbq! The Big Pig Project, presented by Lunch. | Supper!, takes place on Saturday, April 22 from 12-6 p.m. at 1215 Summit Avenue & W. Marshall Street. We'd love to see you there!
