Wild Boar Wiffle Ball

Sept. 3, 2022

Time: 10am - 4pm

The Epplen Pig Roast began as a family gathering during the summer of 1999. Over time, it evolved into an annual event supporting many charities throughout the years.  

The Wild Boar Wiffle Ball Tournament is being established to continue the legacy of The Epplen Pig Roast and will embody the spirit of the original event with all proceeds benefiting the Mike Epplen Philanthropic Fund.  

This tournament will be an annual event taking place over Labor Day weekend at the DCCH (Diocesan Catholic Children’s Home) fields in Fort Mitchell, KY.


Wild Boar Wiffle Ball will occur on September 3rd, 2022…  Rain or Shine! There will be a Wiffle Ball Tournament, Beer Sales, Water/Pop Sales, Bounce House, Kona Ice, Grand Marshall/Name the Pig Drawing, Merchandise Online Shop, and food throughout the day. 


BOURBON RAFFLE - $50 a chance (limit 200)
