The BigGER Rig Gig returns to the Ox Ridge Hunt Club in Darien Sept. 27 for Opus for Person-to-Person's fall fundraiser.

From 6:30 to 10:30 p.m., guests will enjoy an evening filled with food, live music and games. Last year's inaugural event raised more than $42,000 for P2P.

"Opus is incredibly grateful for the tremendous support we received last year in making the BigGER Rig Gig our most successful fall fundraiser to date," said Sarah Caras, co-president of Opus for Person-to-Person. "Many thanks to Ring's End, who will generously return as our lead sponsor. We look forward to making this year's event an unforgettable evening."

For more than 15 years, Opus has supported the Norwalk- and Darien-based Person-to-Person through fundraising efforts and public awareness.

Last year, approximately 24,500 people received assistance from Person-to-Person, including food and clothing donations, funds for scholarship and camp programs, layettes for babies and living assistance loans.

Tickets, at $125, go on sale in early August.
