CENTREVILLE Tickets are still available for Crossroads Community's Flying Pig Roast from 4 to 7 p.m. May 5 at Piney Point Farm in Centreville.
This year's theme is "Defying the Odds," signifying the challenges often faced by Crossroads Community clients. The organization provides mental health recovery resources for residents of Kent, Queen Anne's, Caroline, Talbot and Dorchester counties.
Proceeds support a special fund for its clients' dental services, which often are not covered by other medical assistance. Dentists Neil Brayton of Chestertown and Thomas Downs of Centreville will be honored during the event for providing significant discounts on dental work for Crossroads Community clients.
The upscale catered pig roast with all the trimmings features entertainment by the Bay Country Gentlemen, a bluegrass group from Queen Anne's County. Both live and silent auctions will be offered to give guests an opportunity to support Crossroads Community even further.
Baltimore Orioles fans and collectors will want to bid on the out-of-print 1995 Beckett Tribute to Cal Ripken Jr., signed by Ripken and authenticated by the IronBirds organization, or the manager's-style Orioles leather jacket. A gourmet dinner and entertainment for ten guests at a private home in Easton is being offered, along with a"Day in the Life of a Waterman" package, complete with breakfast and lunch. The wide variety of donated items also includes a handmade mosaic table, an original painting by artist Marcy Dunn Ramsey and much more.
Tickets are $55 per person, $100 per couple. Groups may reserve tables of eight and be treated to a special pig roast package, complete with drinks and appetizers. Tickets available at TicketLeap.com or the Crossroads Community website, www.ccinconline.com. For more information regarding a table package, call 410-758-3050.
