Idaho State University CW HOG 29th annual Pig-Out set Sept. 18 at Ross Park

Posted September 10, 2010

The 29th annual Idaho State University CW HOG Pig Out, a dinner and fundraiser for Idaho State University’s Cooperative Wilderness Handicapped Outdoor Group, is Saturday, Sept. 18, at the Lower Ross Park Pavilion. CW HOG provides outdoor recreational opportunities for individuals with and without disabilities.

Dinner includes grilled pork chops, Idaho baked potatoes, corn on the cob, a Dutch oven vegetarian dish, and ice-cold beverages.  Dinner is from 4 to 7:30 p.m. Musical entertainment, featuring US Bluez and Soul Full of Blues, will be from 4 to 11 p.m.

The Pig Out is the biggest annual event for CW HOG. Proceeds benefit ISU’s CW HOG program by providing staffing, trainings for staff and volunteers, equipment, and financial aid to participants who would other wise not be able to get the experiences that CW HOG has to offer. The confidence, self-esteem, and lifelong memories that come along with challenging oneself with outdoor adventures are immeasurable and CW HOG is committed to assisting with these challenges.

Those 12 and older pay $14 in advance, $15 at the door. Children 11 and younger pay $6 in advance, $7 at the door. Children ages 5 and younger eat free.  The cost for a family of four is $35 with $5 for each additional child. Those only listening to the music pay $7.

Advance tickets are on sale at Scott’s Ski and Sports, Sandbaggers, Barrie’s Sports, Ace Hardware & Snake River Outdoor Sports, and The Outdoor Adventure Center on the ground floor of the Pond Student Union Building.

T-shirts with this year’s Pig Out slogan "Tickling Pork Bellies" will be on sale for  $13 and will be available at the Pig Out.
