Since 2009, Hogs for the Cause has continued to evolve and grow, with an expanded calendar of events for the 2013 experience. "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. "By securing these crowd favorites we are in essence securing more funding for the families we endeavor to help. It is a win-win for everyone in attendance!"

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.

The purpose of Hogs for the Cause is to provide aid and relief of those variable expenses and economic burdens which families face while their child is being treated for pediatric brain cancer.
