Cookin’ for a Cure

Cookin' For A Cure
The Tampa Pig Jig was founded by (left to right) Chris Whitney, Vince Chillura, Ryan Reynolds and Wes Tolbert (far right) in support of their friend Will Wellman (second from right)

Hosted at Curtis Hixon Park on the riverfront since 2014, the Pig Jig has raised over $3 million for NephCure and draws thousands in attendance every year. The eighth-annual Pig Jig (happening October 20) promises to be the largest one yet, with 50 individual barbecue teams serving food, six musical acts — including country singer Chris Young — and plenty of fun for the whole family.
