Taking place under an open-air tent, this year’s Bigger Rig Gig has “Gone South” and will feature live music from bluegrass band, The Wool Hats, as well as DJ Matthew Mixwell. Food trucks including House of Bones BBQ, Mardi Parti, Melt Mobile, Taco Loco and Yardbird and Co will provide delicious, Southern-themed fare. The event will feature lawn games, dancing under the stars and the chance to win raffle prizes, including a family adventure package at Camelback Resort, a getaway to the famed Grace Mayflower Inn and Spa, a United Nations tour and Delegates Dining Room lunch, group yoga package and a family photography session from local photographer Karen Morneau.
“The Bigger Rig Gig is an important event that directly supports Person-to-Person’s Emergency Assistance Program,” said Rebecca Morrison, co-president, OPUS Person-to-Person. “Last year the event raised more than $85,000 which provided assistance to members of our neighboring communities, and we are confident that we will surpass that number with this year’s event.”
