New Orleans' favorite "party with a purpose" is celebrating it's 9th annual festival March 23-24.
We are Team Hair of the Hog and this ragged collection of friends will be competing and fundraising for our sixth year.
The festival was created as a fun and meaningful way to raise money for those families affected by Pediatric Brain Cancer. The monies raised at this event(and throughout the year) are distributed, through grants, to offset the ancillary costs incurred by the families that are not covered by their insurance carriers, the hospitals, and/or Medicaid. These costs can be insurmountable, and may include anything from travel expenses to out of the area hospitals, to costs to eat while at the hospitals with the children, to costs to install improvements to make their homes more accessible to the suffering children.
In addition to cooking up some amazing pork products for the event, which will be judged and sold at discounted prices to the attendees, the teams are tasked with helping fundraise for the charity. Our team’s goal is to raise $5,000 to help further this cause.
In addition to donating, we urge you to consider attending. This event has been a tremendous success in years past and should be nothing short of spectacular this year. There are ninety teams competing, all of which will be selling food to the public. There will also be other great food and drink vendors and plenty of activities for guests of all ages. Finally there will be a stacked music line up on both Friday and Saturday that is sure to impress and keep your feet moving all day.
If you purchase tickets online prior to the event, please make sure and select our team name – Team Hair of the Hog – when prompted so that our team may receive credit for your support.

With heartfelt thanks!
