Become a Smokin' for a Cause Corporate Sponsor

Our corporate sponsors are the lifeblood that help us really propel our fundraising efforts forward from year to year.

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. We currently operate alongside Hogs For The Cause, a New Orleans based charity which operates as the premier funding source for pediatric brain cancer outreach services in the United States. 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 in 2015, we have been able to contribute over $12,000 in direct aid to children in the East Tennessee region, as well as a $25,000 grant to East Tennessee Children’s Hospital in conjunction with Hogs for the Cause.

Along with the amazing benefits of making a donation that will help families dealing with Pediatric Brain Cancer, we offer attractive exposure for your business. Smokin' For A Cause is one of the fastest growing events in the Knoxville area and combines the fantastic atmosphere of Norris lake with the multi-sensory experience of BBQ, brews and music. By becoming a Smokin' For A Cause sponsor, your Company logo will be displayed at our event at Stardust Marina on July 21st and 22nd as well as on on our promotional material and social media posts.

Not only do we offer full tax deductibility as we are a 501(c)3 organization, but we also offer some amazing benefits to our generous sponsors for their very meaningful contributions.
