On June 26, 2021, Hogs for the Cause will host its first ever in-person event in Baton Rouge to raise funds for Hogs House on Our Lady Lake of the Children's Hospital's campus in Baton Rouge.

Since 2009, Hogs for the Cause has raised over 1.5 million dollars in grants for families struggling with pediatric care by bringing people together through barbecue culture. Thanks to the hardworking team and the support of donators, Hogs for the Cause is the premier nationwide funding source to families whose child is battling cancer. The Baton Rouge project built a 12-suite home that families of children with cancer can comfortably stay in while they need to be near the hospital for treatment. Since opening in October 2019, the Hogs House has been at full capacity. President of Our Lady of the Lake Children's Health Dr. Trey Dunbar notes, "It's so important that we support all our families. The support this house brings goes beyond improving the lives of families of children with medical needs, it improves our patient's healing environment."
