Hogs for the Cause offering grants

Founders of Hogs for the Cause say the fifth annual benefit and cook-off raised $700,000 in one weekend.

The event to raise money for families coping with pediatric brain cancer was March 22-23 at City Park Festival Grounds.

“We are deeply grateful to all who attended Hogs for the Cause 2013. Without them, we could not fight this fight,” the event’s co-founder Rene Louapre said in a news release.

Hogs for the Cause already has provided more than $70,000 in grants to families since the March event and is accepting new requests for funding at http://www.hogsforthecause.org, he said.
