Pigging Out for a Great Cause

It all started when a few guys gathered to watch a Packer game and passed the hat to help a friend in need. Seventeen years later that simple act of kindness has grown into a major fundraising enterprise that supports dozens of non-profit organizations in Ozaukee County. To date, over $480,000 has been given to human service, special needs and scholarship charities.

Mel’s famous Pig Roast has been the centerpiece from the start. Thousands of pork lovers wait all year to pig out with Mel at his famous outdoor feast. In addition, Mel’s Pig Roast Charities runs many other events throughout the year including a softball tournament, music festival, bowling tournament, golf outing, motorcycle rally and a 5K run/walk.

In the last few years, PKA has been the primary supplier for all the creative advertising materials including logo design, posters specialty advertising and many more creative pieces that have helped promote Mel’s Pig Roast in the community.
