Date:10/12/2009

DUPLIN COUNTY, N.C., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Grab your apron, roll up your sleeves, and get ready for a full day of great food, great music, and affordable fun for the whole family when Lazarex Cancer Foundation hosts "Hogs n Hens for Hope" Saturday, October 17th from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m at the Duplin County Events Center in Kenansville.

"Hogs n Hens for Hope" is the first major fund-raiser for the recently launched North Carolina chapter of Lazarex Cancer Foundation and offers a wide range of family festivities for everyone from kids to seniors. General admission is only $15 for adults and kids under 5 are FREE!

Lazarex Cancer Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing financial assistance to defray the costs associated with participation in FDA approved clinical trials for end stage cancer patients who have exhausted all other traditional treatment options. The foundation also helps patients navigate their clinical trial options, and offers community education and outreach services.

Among the special features of this event is an NCPC (North Carolina Pork Council) sanctioned BBQ cook-off featuring some of the finest BBQ chefs in the region competing against each other. A hog will be provided to each team, and the pork cook-off will be judged according to NCPC regulations. Judges will choose three winners who will qualify to win cash prizes and enter the North Carolina Barbecue Championship for the next two years. Chicken and turkey will also be on the barbecue grill with all the traditional fixin's, and there will be plenty of beer and wine to wash it all down and quench your thirst.

Live music and entertainment will heighten the festivities with performances throughout the day and evening by popular local bands, including Rich Emily, Machine Gun, Aaron LaFalce and Echo Code. For the young (and the young at heart), additional attractions will include Bungee Trampoline, Rock Climbing Wall, Mechanical Bull, 24' Dual Slide, Extreme Obstacle Course, Jurassic Adventure, Circus Train Crawl Through, Clubhouse Moon Bounce, Inflatable Twister, 3 Lane Bungee Run, Velcro Wall, Rock N Roll Joust, 9 Hole Putting Course and Carnival Games.

There will also be live demonstrations by master chainsaw carver and award-winning sculptor, Marlin Miller. A fourth generation artist, he has developed a unique style of sculpting marine life into driftwood. His work is on display in galleries and the homes of private collectors around the world.

For two-wheel enthusiasts, "Hogs n Hens for Hope" offers a Motorcycle Ride for a "Life" Time departing at 11:00 a.m. from the Duplin County Events Center, to the New River Harley-Davidson/Buell dealership in Jacksonville (where lunch and refreshments will be served), then on to Topsail Beach and back to the events center. The $50 per rider fee includes the ride and refreshments, along with admission to the festival plus a commemorative T-shirt and a full plate of barbecue. All proceeds from the ride benefit Lazarex.

For folks not inclined to hop on their 'hog' and ride, many celebrated local artisans will be on hand at the event to display and sell their colorful, high-quality arts and crafts, and two-time North Carolina goose calling champion Allen Bliven will be on hand to demonstrate his famous duck and goose calls.

The Duplin County Events Center is located on HWY 11 in Kenansville across from James Sprunt Community College within a few miles of HWY 24, HWY 903, HWY 50 and Interstate 40.

Tickets to "Hogs n Hens for Hope" are available through Ticketmaster or at the Duplin County Events Center on Saturday, October 17. To register for the motorcycle ride, call Bill Johnson (910) 289-8407. For further information visit www.Lazarex.org.
