Willowbrook Lions cook up something good at annual pig roast

The Willowbrook Lions woke up early on August 10 to get the pork on their roaster and ready for people to eat. After the pigs roasted all day, that night people could get a taste of the Lions’ hard work, and people came out to try what they had cooked up.

Vincent Smogyi with the Lions said that the fundraiser has been going for about 15 years, but this is the second year that the Lions themselves have done all the cooking. They purchased their roaster two years ago from the person who used to roast for them, and are thrilled with the results.


“It’s working out super,” said Smogyi.


Two and a half pigs were roasted for people, with the remainder of the meat being auctioned off. The pigs were butchered on Wednesday, injected with sauces on Thursday, spent Friday marinating before being cooked on Saturday.


A fundraiser for the club, all money raised stays in the area, said Smogyi. Previous causes have included the Health Foundation’s campaign for digital mammography equipment, travel expenses for area families to get medical treatment, and scholarships for students.
