"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.

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.
