Empower Me Day Camp will host its 10th annual Swinefest fundraiser on Saturday, Aug. 2, at College Hills Church of Christ in Lebanon.
A $25 ticket can be purchased at the door and will include a barbecue meal from Blue Moon, drink and live entertainment. Doors open at 6 p.m.
Empower Me Director Michelle Hill said this will be the final year of Swinefest. “It has been successful and we have received so much support; however, it is time to move in another direction,” she said.
Hill explained that Swinefest began as a Leadership Wilson project and that another Leadership Wilson project that developed this year will take its place as Empower Me’s primary fundraiser.
The inaugural Jere’s Ride bike ride, in honor of the late Jere McCulloch, a local father, attorney and business leader, was held on April 26 and raised funds for Empower Me. Hill said it will continue to serve as their annual fundraiser. “We are partnering with them and doing that now.”
Empower Me Day Camp is a non-profit organization that helps disabled children in the area. It was founded in 1999 and offers summer camps and other events throughout the year in which therapists and teachers work, play and do craft activities with the children.
