Hogs for the House 2017

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

Professional grillers competed to win the Judge’s Choice Award and the People’s Choice Award.

Guests used 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.

We thank all of our competitors for joining us on the first Hogs for the House event. Competitors for this year included: Another Bite BBQ, BBQ Bliss Catering and More, Cotton’s Kitchen LLC, Firehouse BBQ, Lunchbox LLC, and the Midnight Smoker BBQ Company.

Two bands- Southbound and Anderson Highway provided 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 1600 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.

#HalfForTheHouse Raffle

Thank you to everyone who participated in the #HalfForTheHouse 2017- 50/50 Raffle. Your support helps over 1600 survivors of domestic/sexual violence in our community.

Congratulations to the winner of this year’s raffle who purchased a digital ticket this year. She won $1,180 for herself and $1,180 was raised for James House. We had 50% of our participants purchase digital tickets and 50% purchase tickets in person.

The winner was drawn at the Hogs for the House Benefit Cook Off Competition on September 23. Each online ticket was  assigned a raffle number in numerical, chronological order. At the event, volunteers put a numbered ball matching each raffle ticket number sold into the bingo ball hopper and a volunteer drew the winner at 3:40pm during the event awards ceremony.
