Hogs for the House 2018

Hogs for the House 2018

We are partnering with Colonial Harley-Davidson on their Fall Open House to host a friendly and delicious competition, live- music from Anderson Highway, food, refreshments and prizes!

Professional grillers competed to win the Judge’s Overall Best Award, awards in 5 different categories, and the People’s Choice Award.

Guests will use tasting tickets to sample all of the competitors’ foods, then vote in the People’s Choice Award. The Midnight Smoker BBQ Company was selected as the 2017 Colonial Harley-Davidson People’s Choice Award Winner!

Firehouse BBQ was named as the 2017 Colonial Harley-Davidson Judges’ Choice Award Winner. The Midnight Smoker BBQ Company was given a special award for their brisket. This year it might be your team!

To register to compete in Hogs for the House Benefit Cook Off Competition, go HERE or email for a paper form, anna@thejameshouse.org.

We will have two provide live music at Colonial Harley-Davidson’s outdoor stage with professional quality sound provided by 524LiveSound.

James House depends on our annual fall fundraiser and raffle to support the programs and services that we offer to women, men, and children affected by sexual violence, domestic violence and stalking. We help over 1700 people per year providing safe shelter, life saving services and resources, and helping them to learn about healthy relationships. We greatly appreciate your support of our events.

In 2017, over 100 volunteers helped us with Hogs for the House. We are in need of volunteers to help out at the event in a diversity of categories. We can use individuals, families, school groups, civic groups, teams, students needing service hours, work places, and more. To register to volunteer, go HERE.

For further event details on upcoming events, follow us on social media or contact  Anna at James House, 804-458-2704 or anna@thejameshouse.org.
