CAUSE: Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta
Jonathan and Justin Fox of Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q in Little Five Points have always looked for ways to give back, and they have chosen Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) as one of their primary causes. One way they support the hospital is through participation in Hogs for the Cause (HFTC), a New Orleans-based foundation that offers monetary assistance to families with children battling pediatric brain cancer, including families at CHOA. Since 2014, the brothers have partnered with Taqueria del Sol and Home Team BBQ as Team Foxeria del Sol to compete in the Hogs for the Cause barbecue competition in New Orleans to support the charity. “Over the last four years, we have raised more than $460,000, and this money stays in the metro Atlanta area, helping out local families through Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta,” Justin says. “We recently committed $750,000 to CHOA with HFTC that will directly impact the hospital’s needs.”
In addition to the barbecue competition, the Fox brothers host several fundraising events throughout the year to raise money for CHOA. These include a golf tournament each March, a “Round Up for the Cause” where guests can round up their check to the next dollar and several taco weeks held in tandem with Taqueria del Sol.
The Fox brothers enjoy giving back whenever they can because they love seeing the impact it can have on a person or family who needs it. “We are always trying to figure out what else we can do,” Jonathan says. “Every little bit helps.”
