impact on the community

lakeland pigfest’s impact on the polk county, florida community

The Lakeland Pig Festival is proud to support a variety of charitable interests throughout our community, and to date we have given one million dollars back to the community over our 18-year history.

By developing strategic partnerships with nine local charities who provided hundreds of volunteer hours to support Lakeland’s largest Community Event, we have developed a formula for successfully insuring our positive return to the community.

our 2015 local partners are:

  • Alliance for Independence
  • Sun n Fun Youth Education
  • Learning Resource Center
  • L.H.S. Men’s Tennis Team
  • Imperial Symphony Orch.
  • Girls Inc.
  • Exploration’s V
  • Camp Fire Sunshine
  • Boys and Girls Club

The Board of Directors and the Leadership from each of these groups is directly involved in giving back to the Greater Lakeland Area, and Lakeland Pigfestival is more excited than ever to be the vehicle to allow our sponsors, cooks, and all participants to support such a broad interest of local organizations.
