Why Nephrotic Syndrome & FSGS?
A close-knit group of born-and-raised Tampa gentlemen joined forces eight years ago to coordinate the first annual Pig Jig to raise funds to benefit the NephCure Foundation in honor of their dear friend, Will, who was diagnosed with FSGS in 2009. What began as a backyard BBQ has grown into the Tampa Pig Jig on the River, a waterfront blowout with great bands, delicious food, fun games, and more than 6,000 attendees last year.
Over the past 7 years, the Pig Jig event has raised over $3,000,000 with all proceeds benefiting NephCure Kidney International. Our goal for this year alone is to raise $1,000,000! Help us ‘Cue Up a Cure for FSGS!
Tampa Pig Jig is organized and executed solely by the help of volunteers. Join our passionate team today to help the cause and have fun while doing so! We are seeking day-of event volunteers to assist with registration, ticket sales, parking, silent auction, merchandise sales, beverage pouring/bartenders, games, grounds maintenance and more. Let us know what your interests are and we’ll find a task for you!
Help us reach our goal of $1,000,000
