Opus for Person-to-Person will host the first-ever "BigGER Rig Gig" -- a casual evening of fun for grown-ups, featuring gourmet food trucks, a live, local band and games, on Saturday, Sept. 21, at the Ox Ridge Hunt Club in Darien.
Opus traditionally sponsors a popular touch-a-truck style event for families at the Darien Town Hall, but cannot because of scheduled construction. In addition, initial planning is underway for a family/children's event slated for January.
"We are thrilled to build on the legacy of our truck-themed fall fundraising event by creating the BigGER Rig Gig this year," said Jen Forlizzi, co-president of Opus for Person-to-Person. "This unique food truck party for adults promises to be a fun-filled night, and we are very optimistic that it will garner strong support from the community."
The BigGER Rig Gig will take place from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. under a tent at the hunt club fields. Tickets to the BigGER Rig Gig will go on sale in August.
Opus has supported Darien-based Person-to-Person through fundraising efforts and public awareness. Last year, nearly 23,000 people received assistance from Person-to-Person, including food and clothing donations, funds for scholarship and camp programs, layettes for babies, living assistance loans, holiday toy store and more.
