Sunshine, Swine and Dine, a fun family event to support the nonprofit Sunshine on a Ranney Day, will be hosted at The Roswell Tap, 1090 Alpharetta St., Roswell, on Sunday starting at 12:30 p.m.

The Roswell-based nonprofit creates dream room makeovers for children with long-term illnesses in the greater-Atlanta area.

Sunshine, Swine and Dine will include a low country boil with hot dogs for the kids, drink specials, raffles, cornhole, kiddie pools, live music and games.

A percentage of the proceeds with go to the organization to assist with future makeovers.

At just over 1-year-old, the nonprofit has completed six makeovers and currently has two in the works.

More than 150 generous company sponsors, talented design teams and hundreds of gifted volunteers have donated their time, services and products to help improve the lives of children and their families.

The nonprofit’s latest makeover reveal for Tripp Halstead, the toddler who suffered a traumatic brain injury during Hurricane Sandy in 2012, has been viewed online 1.6 million times.

“We are excited to have an event in our hometown of Roswell,” Holly Ranney said. “We even have some of our past makeover families coming, including Tripp Halstead’s family.”
