JULY 21st AND 22nd FOR 2 DAYS OF


What We Are All About

Smokin’ For A Cause started as a simple idea: Gather some friends, cook some delicious BBQ, and support families of children facing pediatric cancer.

As a 501c3 Non Profit Organization, Smokin’ For A Cause is committed to maximizing the impact of every dollar to support families during their struggles with pediatric cancer. We believe our proposal stands not only on the value our partnership will bring to you, but also on the impact your contribution will have on our grant families, the East Tennessee region, and Southern Barbecue lovers everywhere.

Through our fundraising efforts and our relationship with Hogs for the Cause, we are proud to announce a partnership with East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. Since our inaugural event last year, we have been able to contribute over $12,000 in direct aid to children in the East Tennessee region.
