Bacon Fest: The Other Fundraiser 2013 = Success! 


We had an outstanding crowd this year with 2,000 attendees on August 24 who came out to sample delicious bacon fare from local vendors and enjoy Amerisports craft beer. Bacon Fest raised more than $100,000 in gross funds to support the medical rehabilitation, employment placement, and disability services provided at the Rehabilitation Institute of Kansas City (RIKC).


IMPACT:
The amount of funds raised is enough to provide at least one hour of physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, or neuropsychological services to more than 1,500 area children and adults who have experienced a catastrophic injury or illness!


The success of Bacon Fest would not be possible without our supporters and friends!  Special thanks to our presenting sponsor, Ameristar Cares, for providing their craft beer from Amerisports Brew Pub, volunteers, support, and so much more towards the day’s festivities; Assurant Employee Benefits for helping our attendees save up with piggy banks; Neighborhood Tourist Development Fund for helping bring 2,000 people to Midtown Kansas City, and Farmland Foods for providing lots of delicious, savory bacon to the event. See the “sponsors” tab for a complete list of all the local companies who supported bacon Fest.  A BIG thank you to each of you.  


Congratulations to Our Sassy Pantry for winning “Best Pork Partner” at the event.
Thank you to each of our Pork Partners for providing unique bacon fare to Bacon Fest. You, hands down, make this event so great. Your time and resources dedicated to us are very much appreciated.


We’d also like to thank all our hand-working volunteers for their sweat and bacon-smelling elbow grease, as well as the attendees for checking out all that Bacon Fest has to offer.
