PARTERNING WITH LOCAL NONPROFIT GROUPS
Almost from the beginning, Pig on the Pond has been partnering with local non-profit organizations who participate in the festival as a means to conduct fundraising for educational purposes. The following groups participated in past festivals.
Examples of how our nonprofit partners benefit from Pig on the Pond Festival.
East Ridge High School Band Parents Association, Inc.
Selling funnel cakes, fried snickers, and fried Oreos at Pig on the Pond festival helps East Ridge High School Marching Knights earn money to supplement their band programs.
All proceeds earned from the 2019 Annual Pig on the Pond, will go toward paying for instrument purchases and repairs, music, uniforms, and transportation. Please visit the ERHS Band booth and help support the hard-working kids in your local high school band program.

Boy Scout Troop 784
Clermont Troop 784, chartered by First United Methodist Church, is excited to participate in the 2017 Pig on the Pond Community Festival. As in previous years, we will be selling our infamous homemade lemonade, sweet tea, water and sodas. In 2016, the troop's participation enabled the Scouts to raise money to fund summer camp. Our Scouts went to Swamp Base located in Lafayette, LA, and to Camp Sequoyah located in Delta, AL. For summer 2017, the Scouts will be going to Camp Thunder located in Griffin, GA. Thank you for your continued support of Troop 874 and the Boy Scouts of America.
The Kiwanis Club of South Lake
The Kiwanis Club of South Lake has been working with Pig on the Pond for 20 years to raise money to support the kids in the South Lake Community. The money we raise at Pig on the Pond is used to give scholarships to local area high school seniors. In the past, the club has given scholarships to the 3 public schools and to Key Club Members and we are looking forward to the 2019 event to help seniors this year with scholarships.
