About Hogs for the Cause

Hogs for the Cause is a non-profit, annual fundraising barbecue competition and music festival that raises money for families with children fighting pediatric brain cancer. We raise money through ticket sales, direct donations, food sales, sponsorships, and fundraising efforts spearheaded by teams in the barbecue competition.

Every year, more teams (90 at last count) compete in the Ben Sarrat, Jr. Cook Off Presented by Children’s Hospital of New Orleans for the High on the Hog Grand Champion title. The competition is fierce, and the winners claim bragging rights not only in barbecue mastery, but more importantly, fundraising prowess. Teams are a motley mix of some of the region’s best chefs, professional barbecue teams from around the country, and backyard barbecue fanatics, and all teams sell food to the public to raise money for the Cause. Winners are declared in seven categories: Whole Hog, Ribs, Pork Butt/Shoulder, Porkpourri, Sauce, Fan Favorite, and Fundraising Champion.
