Pork Rind Leader Partners with Hall of Famer, Ken Houston, Billy “White Shoes” Johnson and Reggie Kelly to Celebrate Its 8th Annual Pork Rind Appreciation Day
Lima, OH - Rudolph Foods, the world’s largest manufacturer of pork rinds, has announced its eighth annual Pork Rind Appreciation Day campaign in partnership with the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund (GGAF). Celebrated on the biggest football day of the year, Super Bowl Sunday, Pork Rind Appreciation Day was cemented as an annual event after Rudolph Foods secured hundreds of thousands of consumer votes, as well as political designations, in 2010. Matched each year with a charitable endeavor, Rudolph Foods will again support the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund, a nonprofit organization that provides medical and financial assistance to former National Football League (NFL) players and their families in dire need.
Rudolph Foods has also partnered with Football Hall of Famer, Ken Houston, Billy “White Shoes” Johnson and Reggie Kelly in order to engage football fans and pork rind lovers nationwide through this year’s Pork Rind Appreciation Day-inspired sweepstakes. Now through January 30th, 2019, fans are invited to play Get in with the Greats, a virtual scratch to win game, at PorkRinds.com. There, they are invited to enter daily for a chance to win instant prizes like free pork rinds, autographed football memorabilia, t-shirts, bar packs, Amazon gift cards and more. Each time they play, fans are also entered in a raffle for the grand prize of $2,500 and a year’s supply of pork rinds.
A portion of the sale of each purchase of all Rudolph Foods’ products during the Pork Rind Appreciation Day season, including Southern Recipe, Southern Recipe Small Batch, Pepe’s Snacks and Lee’s Pig Skins, will also support the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund, up to $15,000.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund and celebrate Pork Rind Appreciation Day,” says Mark Singleton, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Rudolph Foods and Advisory Council Member for GGAF. “It is an honor to partner with Billy “White Shoes” Johnson again this year, and add Ken Houston and Reggie Kelly to our team to support this great cause for our eighth year. By bringing together football fans and pork rinds fans alike, we are helping raise awareness and funds for the Gridiron Greats in the most engaging way we know.”
