Pig Parade Auction Totalized Over €5000

The auction of 37 fiberglass-made pigs that took place in the evening of the 29th of June 2011 at the Feira de S. João (St. John's fair) precinct totalized €5410.
The highest value achieved was €310, with a starting bid of €100.
Most part of the pigs was acquired by privates.

The money will go in total to the APPACDM (Portuguese Association of Parents and Friends of the Hadicapped Citizen) of Évora.
According to the president of the association, Silvino Costa, the money will be applied in the construction of new head-quarters, with the objective of providing better conditions to the users of the association.

Decorated mostly by students from the city of Évora, these fiberglass-made pigs were part of the "Pig Parade" exhibition, an event that experienced a few incidents.
