Event Details

News release from Hospice Brazos Valley:

Put an exclamation mark at the end of your summer by making muddy memories at Hog Splash 2019! Hog Splash is a mud volleyball tournament hosted annually by Hospice Brazos Valley and Slovacek’s Sausage which will take place on Saturday, August 24th at Slovacek’s in Snook, Texas. Hog Splash is a family friendly event which also features food, cold soft-drinks and beer, and a mud pit just for the piglets (kids).

At Hog Splash, teams of 8-10 players ham it up while playing volleyball in pits that are dug out of the dirt and then filled knee deep with water. Starting at 9:00am, each team plays several quick 15 minute games throughout the morning. All teams are co-ed, and play continues till early afternoon when three teams come out head and snout above the rest and are awarded trophies, medals, and bragging rights till next year.

Dianne Lero, Fund Development Supervisor for Hospice Brazos Valley states, “All skill levels are welcome to come out and play volleyball at Hog Splash. However, if getting muddy isn’t your thing, there are many great ways to participate in Hog Splash and support Hospice Brazos Valley through sponsorship, volunteering, donating, or just spectating. Bring your lawn chair, kick back with a cold beverage, and watch everyone go hog wild! Guests and spectators are free to attend.” This year, Hog Splash is excited to feature new and delicious food offerings from JLM Chicken and Waffles, some of the best barbeque around from 1775 Texas Pit BBQ, and snow cones from Kona Ice.

While Hog Splash is a unique way to have fun in the sun, it also serves as a meaningful fundraiser for Hospice Brazos Valley, the only non-profit hospice provider serving 17 central Texas counties. President and CEO, Craig Borchardt, Ph.D., states, “Central to Hospice Brazos Valley’s 30 years of excellence in hospice care is our unwavering commitment to serve our patients and families. We are single-minded in our desire to make sure each of our patients has the best end-of-life experience possible. We are grateful that the community has time and time again demonstrated that it shares our passion to serve others. Hog Splash provides another opportunity for us to celebrate 30 years of service while raising funds to ensure the future of award-winning hospice care in the Brazos Valley.” Slovacek’s Sausage is also looking forward to its 9th year as the title sponsor for this event. Laura Riley, CFO of Slovacek’s Sausage, states that they welcome the opportunity to support local non-profits like Hospice Brazos Valley and Slovacek’s enjoys giving back to the community by hosting Hog Splash annually.
