ROCKINGHAM — More than a quarter of the 800 plates prepared for the inaugural Pigs-4-Kids barbecue plate sale at Sandhills Children’s Center in Rockingham were sold before the first heaping spoonful of pulled pork was put into a styrofoam container.

In other words, it’s going fast.

Staff and volunteers with the nonprofit organization are working to meet their end of a Cole Foundation Challenge Grant. In order for Sandhills Children’s Center to receive $25,000, it must raise $15,000. Combined, the $40,000 will help fund new playground equipment at the Rockingham location.

The sale runs through 5:30 p.m. today, or whenever the 800th dish is served, whichever comes first. Plates are $7 apiece and includes pulled BBQ, cole slaw, baked beans and a roll. The facility is located at 108 Crow Run off Long Drive.

Staff members aim to break ground on July 1 and finish construction by Oct. 1.
