Hogs for the Cause West IV

  • Crystal Bay Casino

On Friday and Saturday, September 6 & 7, 2019, we are excited to be hosting the fourth annual “Hogs for the Cause West” benefit fundraiser. Hogs for the Cause is a 501c (3) nonprofit organization that began in 2009, when a group of folks hosted a pig roast in a park to raise money for a young boy named Ben Sarrat. Ben had been diagnosed with an incurable form of brain cancer. In that first year, roughly 200 people showed up to watch a pig turn slowly on a spit and raise money to help Ben’s family. Fast-forward a few short years (ten to be exact) and Hogs for the Cause is now one of the largest barbecue competitions and music festivals in the country. Their charitable purpose remains the same: helping families fighting pediatric brain cancer. This past March the New Orleans event drew 90+ teams competing in various barbeque competitions, over 30,000 supporters and raised 1.3 million dollars. Our Silence of da Hams team won first place in 2018 in the Whole Hog competition. 100% of the funds raised are returned as grants to families in need of financial assistance during their struggle. Hogs for the Cause West was able to assist two Northern Nevada families through the Renown pediatric oncology department.
