Just weeks after their biggest fundraiser of the year, the crew was at it again. They just got done raising over $20,000 at Harold's Golf Fiasco, and now they've added some icing to the cake with another $4800 raised during Harold's Hogfest in Carlton, Minnesota.

How can a town with a population of just 962 people raise this kind of money? It takes a village.

The annual pig roast takes place in September at the Carlton VFW. They serve up pulled pork sandwiches, Ray Schmitz's famous beans, coleslaw, and all the fixings. It's only $8 a plate, and that's a good deal for this great of a meal!

Ray also makes the best beans, and he even makes his special Holy Schmitz Sauce. It's a clever name and tastes fantastic!

The fundraiser's mascot and chief taste tester Harold was there to be the ringleader of the circus. You can see him here giving these kids a hard time.

In under a month, this group of volunteers has raised $25,000 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

St. Jude is the leading research facility helping kids with catastrophic illnesses like cancer. They share their research freely with the world to help treat children without charging a dime.
