Pigs for the Kids Fundraiser: BB ‘Que for the Cure
Desert Oasis European Auto Repair Shop is helping to spread word about an upcoming charity event here in Las Vegas, NV called Pigs for the Kids to raise funds for three children’s cancer foundations.
Close family friends of Desert Oasis owners, Jacki and Gyorgy Kiss, have an 11-year old daughter who faced cancer. We’re happy to report that our young friend, the family’s 11-year-old daughter, survived her cancer battle. But more work needs to be done. That’s why Desert Oasis is helping to sponsor Pigs for the Kids!
Pigs for the Kids Event Information
Pigs for the Kids will be held on on September 19th as a 10-hour festival and barbecue competition to raise funds that support pediatric cancer foundations: CandleLighters, Cure 4 The Kids Foundation and Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation. Local and regional barbecue connoisseurs vie for the top prizes in four categories: pork shoulder, ribs, beans and sauce. Competitors include first-rate restaurant chefs and plain old barbecue enthusiasts alike. Trophies for first and second place will be awarded to each team or individual in each category, and an overall champion will receive top honors.
There are a variety of ways you can participate in the fundraiser. You can cook up your best recipe and enter the contest, or spend the day sampling everyone else’s. Ice cold beer and other beverages will be on hand for washing down those spicy, lip-smacking pork ribs and cowboy beans. Enjoy live music and other entertainment. Kids will find plenty to do in the Piggy Pen. Pigs for the Kids is an ideal opportunity to bond with your family, neighbors and the community.
