Dine out, do good ... barbecue for Charlotte's Light Factory

Friday (April 18) is the last day to buy T-shirt tickets for the May 3 "Golden Hamiversary" of the CSCA Pig Roast, an event run for years by the Charlotte Society of Communicating Arts, and this year making a return -- and benefitting The Light Factory.

The event is rain or shine, at 9832 Concord Highway, Midland. You'll get pork, slaw, beans and buns, plus live music and "all sorts of frivolity," says its press (rumors include a bonfire), and tickets (which come with T shirts) cost $38 for S, M, L and XL, and $40 for XXL. Tickets will be sold until noon April 18 at the link above, which also gives you a little stroll through images past of the pig roast. (No spoilers, but scroll around on the website, because some of the old images and tales are fantastic. Personal favorite: 1993.) Here's a shortcut for the short of attention span.

(I know the image is cut off on one side, but Blogger only gives you a few sizes to choose from, and this pig, by seems to need some room to stretch ...)

The Light Factory Contemporary Museum of Photography and Film, founded in 1972, is working to reestablish itself in a new location on Central Avenue (it suspended operations in Spirit Square last fall) and is working to raise money for upfitting two galleries, classroom space and a darkroom.

Thank you Helen Schwab for doing this post about the CSCA Pig Roast. CSCA and The Light Factory both really appreciate this. Going to be a great event.
