We have been planning non-stop for the next event since the outstanding success we had in June. Our goal is always to help more families in need, and our teams have raised the bar on that goal. We expect 2022 to be epic!” ~ Becker Hall, CEO and Co-Founder of Hogs
Hogs For The Cause 2022 Details
Hogs for the Cause event and fundraising successes have made it possible to broaden the mission to include building Hogs Houses, a place for the most critical patients and their families to stay. With plans to build a Hogs House on Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital campus in Baton Rouge, the organization has earmarked $2.25 Million. The Hogs Family Residence will serve as on-campus housing for any family from the Baton Rouge area or other regions of the state who have a child receiving ongoing healthcare treatment at the children’s hospital. “We are extremely proud of the event we have put on for more than a decade,” said Rene Louapre, COO & Co-Founder of Hogs. “Our teams are the rainmakers for our cause. Even during a pandemic, they have continued to fundraise for our families battling pediatric brain cancer. They join our sponsors in making Hogs for the Cause so successful.”
Hogs for the Cause Sponsors include: Children’s Hospital of New Orleans, Michelob Ultra, Phelps Dunbar, Irpino Avin Hawkins, and Boucaner Wine.
