MP&A Employees and Sponsors Raise More than $10,000 for Hogs for the Cause!

MP&A employees and their families came from New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Lake Charles and Houston to join the more than 30,000 people supporting  the ninth annual Hogs for the Cause fundraiser the weekend of March 31, 2017.

90 teams served barbecue and raised funds for families with children battling pediatric brain cancer. The two-day event on the grounds of the UNO Lakefront Arena raised $1.3 million.  MP&A and their family of sponsors raised more than $10,000 for the cause.  Good barbeque, family and friends, good weather and a generous New Orleans spirit made the event a huge success on all levels.

Pigzani & Hogsociates invites you to join us at Hogs for the Cause!

MP&A will compete in the Hogs for the Cause BBQ competition this weekend (March 31st and April 1st) and invites you to stop our spot at Plot C-9 (Pigzani & Hogsociates) right near the main festival gate for some great BBQ in support of the cause!  For more information and tickets, please visit http://www.hogsforthecause.org/

The barbecue festival is a two-day event full of music, local beer, and fundraising. On Friday night, individual teams host parties before they spend the night cooking whole hogs for the competition Saturday. Join us for the tastiest BBQ festival in New Orleans!

Pigzani & Hogsociates Supporting 2017 “Hogs for the Cause”

MP&A (aka, “Pigzani & Hogsociates”) has begun the prep for another round of food, fun, and fundraising to support Hogs for the Cause (http://www.hogsforthecause.org).  Last year, MP&A and its sponsorship partners raised $6,000 in support of the Hogs’ mission and we hope to blow that total out of the water this year.  Last year’s fundraising efforts earned us first booth location selection in our category and we have a primo piggy selling location right near the entrance of the new (and flood-proof) venue!!!

Anyone interested in helping support us in reaching our fundraising goals, please feel free to reach out to our Office Manager Diana Graham (dgraham@mpisani.com) or our Hogs Committee Chairman Gray Adams (gadams@mpisani.com).  All donors will have their logos posted at our booth for all festival entrants to see.   

If you plan to purchase a ticket, please select that you are purchasing the ticket on behalf of team Pigzani & Hogsociates from the dropdown menu on the Hogs website.  This will add more donations to the pot at no cost to you.

We hope to see you there March 31st through April 1st at the Lakefront Arena Festival Grounds!

Team Pigzani and Hogsociates
