Meat Raffle to benefit Prevent Child Abuse Pickens





 Re-scheduled for June 30th due to predicted bad weather this weekend










The “wheel of meat” being spun at last year’s raffle.


     Come get your meat! Join us at Rocco’s Pub in Jasper on June 30 for the 2nd Annual “First Ever Meat Raffle in Georgia” that will take place during the Get Your Motor Runnin’ for Kids bike rally benefiting Prevent Child Abuse Pickens. A meat raffle, originating in the US in Minnesota and Wisconsin, is the tradition of raffling off meat in pubs and bars to benefit local charities. There will be 20 different cuts of meat including a whole tenderloin, ham, steaks, turkey and much more. Only 20 tickets for each round will be sold so your chances of taking home one of these delicious


meats is excellent! Buy one ticket or purchase all 20 to help support a great local charity. Join us for this fun event and hear the whir of the big wheel as it’s spun and the calls of the MC for the next lucky winner to “come get your meat!” Tickets for the meat raffle are only sold the day of the event and are limited. Biker registration is at 11 a.m. and the meat raffle, car show, live music and festivities start at 1.
    Prevent Child Abuse Pickens was founded 17 years ago with the mission to stop abuse and neglect before it starts and promote early school readiness.  Primary programs are Footsteps for Families and Parents as Teachers, designed to greet every parent with children from 0-5 years of age and provide them guidance, parenting education and family support until the child enters kindergarten. Unfortunately, due to a lack of funding, there is a waiting list of 52 families needing support.         
     For additional information, to volunteer or to make a donation please contact PCAP at or PCAPickens on Facebook or by calling 706-253-6488.
    Remember, April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month.  The pinwheel has become a symbol of Prevent Child Abuse nationwide. Prevent Child Abuse Pickens encourages all citizens concerned with the well being of our children to support Pinwheels for Prevention by purchasing pinwheels at various locations around town throughout the month of April.
