At City Park’s normally pig-heavy “Hogs for the Cause,” this year’s opening night of the annual barbecue fundraiser benefiting children who are being treated for pediatric brain cancer opted instead for a “Seafood Jubilee,” choosing to showcase the piscine talents of various Southern chefs.

Appropriate for a Lenten Friday evening, the evening kicked off with a mid-season crawfish boil and oyster roast, as well as a barbecued whole pig. A four-course seated informal family meal followed, featuring dishes from a diverse group of seafood and barbecue specialists from all over the Gulf Coast and southeastern United States, including the likes of chefs Andy Ticer, Michael Hudman, Sean Brock, Nick Pihakis, Drew Robinson, Carey Bringle, Tandy Wilson, John Currence, Angie Mosier, Caleb Zigas, Rob McDaniel, Donald Link, Stephen Stryjewski, Ryan Prewitt, Ashley Christensen and Rodney Scott.

The creative minds behind Bellocq and Cure provided a variety of cocktails as libations, featuring Mississippi-crafted and local favorite Cathead Vodka. Guests enjoyed musical entertainment for the evening  provided by Rosco Bandana, Dumpstafunk and North Mississippi Allstars, as well as an extensive silent auction.
