Home Team BBQ Organizes a Team for the 2014 Hogs for the Cause BBQ Competition in New Orleans
The boys of Fiery Ron’s Home Team BBQ have put together a team for this year’s Hogs for the Cause Barbeque Competition in New Orleans March 28-29, 2014 with the intention of winning a prize and raising funds for a great cause. Hogs for the Cause, a 501 (c)3 nonprofit charity event in its third year, raises money for pediatric brain cancer outreach services in the United States. To date, the organization has given over $300,000 to families in need.
On top of live music, public sampling and a party, Home Team BBQ and over 80 other teams will compete for the Louisiana Pork Champion title. Specifically Home Team BBQ will try for the whole hog, shoulder, ribs and a wild card “creative pork dish” categories. They will also be selling their award-winning smoked chicken wings and all of the money from the sales will be donated to Hogs for the Cause.
To prepare for the fundraising efforts, patrons of Home Team BBQ can add $1 or more to their bill or via a donation jar at check-out at both Home Team locations from now until March 24. People can also go online at www.hogsforthecause.org/donate and enter team name “Home Team BBQ” to donate directly. And both restaurants are raffling off 2 sets of custom made William Knife Co. Edisto Oyster knives for $20 a ticket. One winner from each restaurant will receive a set of the knives to be selected on Monday, March 24 (Valued at $600 per set). All of the money will go towards the cause.
