2017 Year in Review
In case you missed any of it, here are the highlights…..
It’s hard to believe 2017 is already coming to a close. We had such a great time partnering
with some tremendous nonprofits this year in our mission to help bring greater impact to those local organizations around the country. We continued to strive to harness the kindness that connects us all.
Cycle For Survival was a blast this year. Kevin and Michael Bacon rode alongside each other in the nationwide fundraiser to raise funds for Sloan Kettering Memorial Hospital and their fight to beat rare cancers. The annual event raised over $34 million dollars from their events in cities across the country. That was another huge step towards beating rare cancers once and for all!
Kevin and Michael also popped into “Karaoke For Cops”, a fundraiser for The Alexandria Police Foundation (APF) in Virginia. They surprised the crowd that had gathered at Rock It Grill on King Street in the historic district of Alexandria, VA. Chief Michael Brown began a rendition of Footloose and called out for help.
That’s when the Bacon Brothers burst out of the kitchen to give him some backup. We had a chance to honor the officers that acted as heroes and saved many lives during the congressional Baseball Shooting earlier that summer. All in all we raised over $3,000 for APF and had so much fun doing it.
Join us in congratulating our Founder, Kevin Bacon, with his recent Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Comedy Series for his character Dick in the new Amazon Prime show, “I Love Dick”. Go Kevin!!!
