Third Annual "Pigs For The Kids" to Take Place Saturday, Sept. 23; Barbecue Team Registration Now Open
The date has been set and team registration is now open for the third-annual Pigs for the Kids barbecue contest and charity fundraiser, which takes place at Craig Ranch Regional Park on Saturday, Sept. 23, from noon to 9 p.m. 

Featuring a spirited barbecue competition, a “Piggy Pen” kids’ play area, live bands, ice cold beer, wine, and more—the family-friendly event tastes good and does good by supporting childhood cancer charities. This year’s Pigs for the Kids Barbecue Cook-Off and Festival will benefit Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation, Cure 4 The Kids Foundation and the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation.

Like no other barbecue competition in Las Vegas, Pigs for the Kids will offer everyone—from backyard grill masters to professional chefs and restaurateurs—a chance to show their barbecue brilliance in a variety of categories. Teams will compete to take home the third-annual Pigs for the Kids Barbecue Cook-Off Grand Champion Trophy; trophies will be offered in five categories: ribs, pork shoulder, sauce, beans and “Hog Wild”—where anything goes, as long as it includes pork. Pigs for the Kids expects 50 barbecue teams to compete, which will be judged by a panel of both certified as well as celebrity judges.

Inspired by founder Todd Radwanski’s daughter, Adilyn, who was diagnosed with a rare eye cancer at 8 months old, Pigs for the Kids was envisioned as a fun-filled community event to support organizations such as those that helped the Radwanski family during Adilyn’s illness. Now a vivacious, athletic 13-year-old girl, Adilyn served as ambassador for the Candlelighters’ 5K, is academically driven and continues to serve as inspiration for everyone around her. It was Adilyn who suggested “Pigs for the Kids” as the name for this event and is delighted to be part of something helping other kids affected by cancer.

The registration fee for team competition is $175 for a 10-foot-by-10-foot booth; $350 for a 20-foot-by-20-foot booth; and $600 for a 40-foot-by-40-foot booth. General admission and V.I.Pig passes will go on sale soon. Sponsorships are also available at a variety of levels. Tickets are on sale now for $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
