Wild Goose Tavern is pleased to announce its First Annual Luau & Pig Roast, set for Sunday, August 4 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Open less than a year, the popular Costa Mesa venue, has committed to donating 50 percent of all event sales to the Newport Beach-based John Wayne Cancer Foundation.

The festive Aloha-themed event will feature a large outdoor beer garden and pig roast prepared by chef Dave Burg. In addition to multiple beers on tap, the beer garden will feature a dedicated cocktail bar with tropical drinks using freshly squeezed juices and muddled fruits such as the event’s “Wild on the Riviera” featured cocktail.

Members of the John Wayne Cancer Foundation will also be on hand with the sale of foundation merchandise including “Wild Goose” t-shirts (the name of the legendary actor’s yacht), of which 100 percent of the proceeds fund the charity.  

“We’re looking forward to an incredibly fun event and pleased to know that the money raised will directly support the fight against cancer through the formidable work of the John Wayne Cancer Foundation,” says Mario Marovic, Wild Goose co-owner. “I’ve always been a huge fan of The Duke and we’re simply grateful to be in a position to host a charity in his honor that may help efforts to combat this terrible and deadly disease.”
