Hogs for the Cause
September 15 @ 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Jelly Bread and The Lique perform free on the patio at the Crystal Bay Casino for Hogs for the Cause, held between 2 and 8 p.m.
The New Orleans-based non-profit Hogs for the Cause started in 2009 to throw a benefit barbecue for a boy named Ben Sarrat who had been diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer. After 200 people turned out for the worthy cause, the organizers realized that they were on to something. Now, the organization is one of the largest nonprofit BBQ outfits across the country. Hogs for the Cause holds its primary event each year in early April at City Park festival grounds in New Orleans, along with other events year-round.
