Helping the Community

One aspect of PorktoberQue that we don’t brag about (it’s kind of bad form to brag on yourself, right?) is the charitable aspect of our festival. Thousands of dollars raised go to benefit civic and youth programs in the community. We also offer free space to numerous non-profits, churches and groups who are fund raising to support their charities.

Some of the many groups who will benefit from PorktoberQue this year are as follows:

  • Northview High School JR ROTC program (you’ll see them parking cars)
  • VFW (https://www.vfw.org/Community/Buddy-Poppy/)
  • Taylor Mason Lodge- They are taking tickets at the gate
  • Northview High Girls Soccer teams- running the cornhole tournament
  • Blue Line Support Group- support services for Police
  • Chattachoochee State Park
  • Northview HS Boys and Girls Cross Country teams- running the People’s Choice tasting tent Saturday from 12-2. 100% of the money raised supports these teams and the cost of participating in local and regional meets
  • AUSA Rampage Basketball- basketball club focusing on the development of young men and athleticism
  • Ashford Area Chamber of Commerce
  • Southern Charmers pet rescue
  • Rosewood Congregation
  • HIPPY (programs for lower income youth to get them school-ready)
  • ASL- sign language programs in Dothan
  • Wiregrass Blues Society-keeping the blues alive in south Alabama
  • CHARM – Pet rescue group from Headland

Additionally, the Car Show raises thousands of dollars through registration fees and awards that as a scholarship to the Automotive Technology program at Wallace College. Literally, hundreds of kids and dozens of groups are supported through your attendance at PorktoberQue! Your $5 admission ticket plays a vital role in this effort. Thanks for supporting PorktoberQue!
