GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

United Way's Hands On Greenville helps out many organizations throughout the Upstate each year and they have a pretty unique fundraiser this week.

Hands On Greenville may be abbreviated HOG, but it's all about little pigs - piggy banks to be exact.

Hands On Greenville, Bill Davis with Thomas Creek Brewery are hosting The Piggy Bank Auction on Thursday night from 6:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. at the Huguenot Mill Loft in downtown Greenville.

Guests will be able to bid on custom-painted and specially designed piggy banks with the raised monies going to support Hands On Greenville and the United Way.

One of the piggy banks being auctioned off will be a FOX Carolina pig painted by Joe Gagnon and signed by Joe, Cody Alcorn, Lauren Elise and Andy Wood.
