The History Of Pig Jig
One of the reasons we love this event so much, is because it was founded by a bunch of guys in their garage with the idea of helping out a friend.
When Will Wellman was diagnosed with a rare type of kidney disease FSGS, a group of lifelong Tampa friends joined forces to host a backyard barbecue – and they called it Pig Jig. The get-together was a small fundraiser for their friend and his new diagnosis. What began as a backyard cookoff among friends has grown into the Tampa Pig Jig on the River, an annual waterfront fundraiser complete with nationally recognized country and rock music artists, delicious food, ice-cold beer, a corporate BBQ competition, and more!
Since it started in 2011, Tampa Pig Jig has donated millions to NephCure Kidney International, becoming its largest annual donor nationwide, and has helped launch more than 26 clinical trials. You can donate to the cause HERE.
