Hogs for the House 2019

Third Annual Benefit Cook Off Competition

We are partnering with Colonial Harley-Davidson for the third annual benefit cook off competition that coincides with Fall Open House. Teaming together to support local survivors of interpersonal violence, we host a friendly and delicious competition, fun day of music, friends, food, refreshments and prizes!

Professional and amateur grillers will compete to win the Judge’s Overall Best Award, Best BBQ Foods, Best Brisket, 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 winner and Mambo Burger was selected as the 2018 winner of the Colonial Harley-Davidson People’s Choice Award.

Firehouse BBQ was named as the 2017 and OG Ribs and BBQ was named as the 2018 Colonial Harley-Davidson Judges’ Choice Award Winner. 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,

On Colonial Harley-Davidson’s outdoor stage, we will have long-time James House friend, domestic violence supporter, modern country band Anderson Highway.

James House depends on our annual fall fundraiser and 50/50 raffle to support the programs and services that we offer to women, men, and children affected by sexual violence, domestic violence and stalking. We helped 911 women and 265 men last 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 the last two years, over 150 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.


We have a couple more vendor spots available. Please EMAIL for the registration link so we can limit duplication and verify if we have space. To join us as a vendor, you can also sponsor the event and be provided space.

For most current information on our events, follow us on social media or contact  Anna at James House, 804-458-2704 or

Thank you to our 2018 Hogs for the House event sponsors!
