The 2008 Cattle Barons’ Ball committee is in search of a few good artists to help “dress” the event’s collection of ceramic pigs.
Each year, in preparation for the Cattle Barons’ Ball, the committee sends out “naked” piggy banks to local artists who volunteer to paint or otherwise decorate them with their own special theme. The pigs then sell for $35 each the night of the ball, with all proceeds going toward the American Cancer Society. The piggy banks, which in the past have been decorated to resemble “Wizard of Oz” characters, university mascots or film stars, have become one of the highlights of the ball each year.
This year’s Cattle Barons’ Ball in Fayette County, “Shooting for a Cure,” will be held on Saturday, Nov. 8. If you are an artist interested in decorating one or more pigs, call Kay Norton at 770-632-1504. For more information on the 2008 Cattle Barons’ Ball, call 770-631-0625 or visit www.baronsball.com.
