Make your day and attend the Pig Roast

Do you feel lucky? Make your way to Apple?s

"Make my day" and "do you feel lucky?" are two of actor Clint Eastwood's most memorable lines from movies.

You can make your day by buying one of artist Jack Weekes' new t-shirts drawn for the fourth annual Apple's Bar & Grill 100-Day Pig Roast scheduled for Friday, Aug. 17.

Theme of this year's 100-Day Pig Roast fund-raiser for the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation is "A Fistful of Pigs." This year's t-shirt to be sold for $15 portrays Eastwood clinching five pigs in his fist.

Organizer and Apple's owner Hank Minor, who doubles as a SVSEF coach during the ski season, said, "We had three pigs last year and sold out the food in two-and-a-half hours. This year we'll have five pigs for the roast."

The 100-Day Pig Roast at the Apple's location in Warm Springs is scheduled for the Friday in mid-August that coincides the closest with 100 days until the start of Baldy's ski season at Thanksgiving.

Minor said, "It has become a massive, very cool and good summer event. We raised $3,500 for the ski foundation last year and hope to exceed $4,000 this year."

Featuring food, drink and entertainment, the Pig Roast begins Friday, Aug. 17 at 5:30 p.m. and continues until 10 p.m. There will be music in the street featuring Kim Stocking and Paul Cox. "It's a rocker," said Minor about the evening.

And here's the part where you might get lucky.

Raffle tickets at $10 apiece or three for $25 are being sold beforehand at both Apple's locations in Ketchum. Prizes include a 2007-08 season ski pass and ski-related merchandise.

The Pig Roast raffle tickets will also be sold at the benefit dinner, dance, raffle and live auction for SVSEF alpine coach Craig (Cheeso) Kjesbo on Friday, Aug. 10, from 5-10 p.m. at the new Apple's Café on Northwood Way in Ketchum.
