Hogs for the Cause Charleston has announced plans are set for its first annual music and food event in Charleston, South Carolina. The Charleston Hogs fundraiser will take place on Saturday, Oct. 4, at The Grove at Patriots Point; gates open at 11 a.m.

The music lineup featured on the Cathead Vodka Stage includes popular Southern rock band Drive-By Truckers, Austin-based rock ‘n' roll group Heartless Bastards, Soul Rebels Brass Band hailing from New Orleans, bluegrass newcomer Whiskey Shivers, and Charleston's own Sol Driven Train and Dead 27s. While the bands keep the stage hot, it's the pitmasters that add spice to the day. Rodney Scott (Scott's Bar-B-Que), Jimmy Hagood (Food for the Southern Soul), John Haire (Nick's BBQ), Conyers Family BBQ, Aaron Siegel (Fiery Ron's Home Team BBQ), Mark Behr (Sweatman's BBQ), and Lynn and Norton Hughes (Shuler's Bar-B-Que, Latta) will serve up the South's best barbeque for a cause.

Tickets for the event are on sale now at www.hogscharleston.org. The early bird “Hog” general admission tickets, available in limited supply, are $30 each. Pork samples are an additional $7 per portion. The “PassPork” (think of it as a prepaid Visa) is $75, which includes admission, a sample dish from all eight vendors and access to the PassPork line which gets faster service. The “Local Palate VIP” ticket for $200 gives all of the benefits of the “PassPork” ticket, as well as an open bar with Husk restaurant bartender Rod Weaver crafting cocktails throughout the day, specialty dishes served by a group of visiting chefs and use of a private restroom.

Hogs for the Cause Charleston is an excellent opportunity for families to come out and have a great time, listen to music and taste some of the best barbeque around,” states Rene Louapre, Hogs for the Cause co-founder.

Hogs for the Cause is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides aid and relief of those variable expenses and economic burdens which families face while their child is being treated for pediatric brain cancer. Currently, Hogs for the Cause — which has partnered with several hospitals nationally, including MUSC Children's Hospital — operates as the premier funding source for pediatric brain cancer outreach services in the United States and has given grants to more than 200 families in need in just six years.
