Here Are Your Hogs For The Cause Winners For 2016


Despite a stormy Friday night, the eighth annual Hogs For The Cause was one for the history books, with beautiful weather, a huge crowd, tons of mud and lots of great food--all in the name of raising money for families of children with pediatric brain cancer.

97 teams competed, but only a few could be crowned champions. Here they are.
