"After a wildly successful event last year, we are extremely proud to bring a nationally recognized music lineup to the event this year," states Becker Hall, Co-Founder.

Tickets can be purchased in advance on the Hogs for the Cause website (http://www.hogsforthecause.org/) beginning Friday, January 18 at 4:30pm, CST.
