Live entertainment will be provided when South Jersey’s own Stealing Savannah takes the stage from 3 – 7 p.m. Stealing Savannah is a 5-piece cover band known for not only performing current hits from artists including Justin Timberlake, Maroon 5 and Nikki Minaj, but also the forever-classics from the 1980s to the 2000s. With the variety offered by this band, everyone will be able to sing along.
Live music won’t be the only entertainment provided as part of the food truck festival. Throughout the afternoon, there will be a variety of games and activities to enjoy, including face painting, balloon art, cornhole and line dancing lead by the RCGC Dance Club. Attendees can also take a tour of the campus, collect some free giveaways from RCGC’s Student Services team or check out a Roadrunners baseball game.
The SGA will be selling bottled water during the event, with all proceeds from the sale going towards their year-long effort to raise funds for Bianca’s Kids. Bianca’s Kids is a non-profit organization based out of Williamstown, N.J. that works to grant a wish for children who have been displaced by the foster system, struck by tragedy or affected by disability. Since its establishment in 2010, Bianca's Kids has served over 13,000 children in New Jersey and around the country. The students of the SGA are truly impassioned by the work of Bianca’s Kids, and have hosted a variety of events and fundraisers during the fall and springs semesters in an effort to contribute to the non-profit’s mission.
Parking and activities are plentiful and completely free of charge – attendees pay only for food and drink. The community is encouraged to come out and enjoy an afternoon of food, fun, friends and family.
