At sundown Friday, about 1.2 percent of Louisvillians began fasting in observance of Yom Kippur. If you’re not a part of the hungry few, this weekend can be very delicious, and philanthropic. The Germantown-Schnitzelberg neighborhoods are hosting two special cookout events that give proceeds to good causes.
The fourth annual Dream Factory Pig Roast  will be held Saturday, as well as the first annual Germantown-Schnitzelberg BBQ Competition . The suckling roast will be spinning at AmVets Post 1 in Schnitzelberg. All proceeds go to benefit the Dream Factory , an organization that grants dreams of children with critical and chronic illnesses.
The roast alone sounds like dream-come-true enough, but I’m a Jew that doesn’t keep kosher yet fasts on Yom Kippur – drooling already.
