POCATELLO – The 35th annual Idaho State University Cooperative Wilderness Handicapped Outdoor Group (CW HOG) Pig Out, a dinner and fundraiser for CW HOG, will be held Sept. 17, in Lower Ross Park Pavilion in Pocatello.
The “35 and Very Alive” dinner includes grilled pork chops, Idaho baked potatoes, corn on the cob, cold beverages and the HOGs' specialty, a vegetarian Dutch-oven dish. Dinner is from 4 to 7:30 p.m. There will be live music by the bands Hot Pursuit and Modern Methods and activities for the kids.
Admission is $10 in advance and $12 at the park for those 12 and older. For children 6-11 admission is $5 in advance, $7 at the door. Children ages 5 and younger eat free. Advance tickets are on sale at Barrie’s Ski and Sports. The Outdoor Adventure Center is in the basement of the Pond Student Union at ISU. The event is sponsored by Mountain View Charity and many other local businesses.
The Pig Out is the biggest annual event for CW HOG. Proceeds benefit ISU’s CW HOG program by providing training for staff and volunteers, equipment, and financial aid to participants who would otherwise not be able to get the experiences that CW HOG has to offer. The confidence, self-esteem and lifelong memories that come along with challenging oneself with outdoor adventures are immeasurable and CW HOG is committed to assisting with these challenges.
