Sponsored by a local Corona family, the Annual Pig Roast is held in a beautiful one acre yard as a family style BBQ mixer. In 2017, ABC Hopes had over 250 guests from all over Orange County and the Inland Empire. This gives supporters and donors a chance to meet and hangout with the families of ABC Hopes.
Pig Roast 2017
The Moore Family rocked the block on Sunday, May 28, 2017, hosting their 32nd Annual Pig Roast to benefit ABC Hopes, Inc. They welcomed guests from all over Corona to participate in the weekend festivities, with a 200 lb. pig to accommodate the crowd's appetite.
The beautifully groomed one-acre property encompassed all elements of Corona which hosted families, friends, and neighbors, inviting them to play basketball, practice their putting and swim in the pool, thus creating the feeling of extended family. "It was noticeable that everyone in attendance felt welcome and at home," said Paul Royce.
The Moore Family outdid themselves with a live Jamaican Band, Fluid Foundation, from Encinitas, CA. The band has played at the Pig Roast for a few years now. "This event is incredible. We are excited to come back and play again next year," said a member of Fluid Foundation.
"We would like to thank everyone that came out and shared in this wonderful event," said Katie to the hundreds in attendance. "We would also like to thank everyone that generously made donations." The donations that ABC Hopes collected from the Pig Roast will go directly towards supporting the programs ABC Hopes has created.
Before eating, Mike Moore shared sentiments with his guest about his father, who passed away May 28, 1977. The Pig Roast is an annual homage to Mike's dad. This year Katie, Founder of ABC Hopes, created t-shirts to commemorate the event. T-Shirts are available for purchase for a limited time.
