We are gearing up for our 9th Annual Sip & Swine BBQ Festival. This is a KCBS sanctioned national event. The event features two days of barbecue competition within a competitor and vendor village located at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville.  There will be numerous options for food and refreshments, live music performances, and will provide an overall family-friendly, casual, and fun atmosphere.

100% of the Sip & Swine BBQ Festival proceeds go to Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter. The festival is on Friday, March 1st from 3 PM to 9 PM, and Saturday, March 2nd from 10 AM to 6 PM. For more info, go to

Volunteers Needed

This is our biggest event of the year. We will need over 200 volunteers. Volunteer staff will have a chance to be a part of something big for the community. Visit to sign up to volunteer.

This year’s Fire & Ice gala was one to remember! Shoutout to the 280 amazingly COOL people who attended and helped us raise nearly $170k in pledges and donations – this will give us the chance to do even more to help women and children experiencing homelessness! We couldn’t ask for a more supportive community. Thank you for getting down with some FIRE dance moves and for always being in our corner and cheering us on. We could never do this without you!
