So you think you can cook a pig? Do you love to eat and give to a good cause? "Music, beer, and pork ... what more could you ask for?"
Hogs for the Cause is shouting out to all amateur cooks, restaurant chefs, and BBQ Masters who want to compete for the title of the 2011 Hogs For The Cause Grand Champion. The party starts on Friday afternoon (March 25th) and keeps going all day on Saturday, March 26th. The deadline to enter a cooking team is February 15th.
According to their web site, Hogs For The Cause enjoyed a breakout year in 2010, as approximately 2500 people showed up on beautiful March day to compete for the title of Louisiana’s pork champion. The crowds responded enthusiastically to helping choose the best dish by depositing donations into the piggy banks of their favorite teams. All told close to $30,000 was raised, with a portion of it going into a fund to provide support to families facing the fight of their lives.
This year Hogs for the Cause is moving the FUN-raiser to City Park to accommodate more revelers.
Hogs for the Cause is a 501(c)(3) organization, meaning that your donations are tax deductible under the full amount as allowed by the IRS.
