Why We Bash!
Bacon Bash Texas proudly supports two charitable causes. Your tickets, auction and merchandise purchases, and donations help us provide warm winter gear for homeless people across Texas AND send Children with Type One Diabetes to specialized Diabetes camps, equip them with continuous glucose monitors, and raise awareness to turn Type One into Type None! More information about our involvement with each is listed below.
Niki Warms the Cold
Bring a coat, blanket, new socks, or other warm winter gear to the event for Niki Warms the Cold! Niki Warms the Cold is a charity born in memory of Cranfills Gap native, Niki Carlson, shortly after her unexpected death. Niki dreamed of keeping coats and blankets in her car to hand out to folks in need. This dream became reality as the seed Niki planted with her family began to grow. Niki Warms the Cold distributes coats and blankets to those in need across the state of Texas. For each item you donate at Bacon Bash Texas, you'll receive one entry into a raffle for an amazing prize! Event proceeds will also help Niki Warms the Cold purchase more coats and blankets to hand out this winter.
Children with Type One Diabetes
Bacon Bash Texas hosts two scholarship funds to equip and support children with Type One Diabetes and their families with knowlege, equipment, and community.
- Diabetes Camp Scholarship: Sends kids with Type One Diabetes to specialized camps where they learn how to manage their Diabetes with other children just like them. These camps can make an incredible difference by instilling the importance of a healthy lifestyle; growing the confidence a child with Type One has in themselves; and helps build community and lifelong friendships among campers. Click here to download a copy of the scholarship application. Deadline is December 31, 2016.
- Dexcom Continuous Glucose Monitor Scholarship: Provides a Dexcom CGM for a child with Type One Diabetes. This system continuously monitors blood levels and alerts a parent via smart phone app when their child's levels become dangerous. These systems bring freedom to children with Type One and peace of mind to parents, and ultimately allows children with Type One to live a more independent lifestye. Click here to download a copy of the scholarship application. Deadline is November 30, 2016.
Bacon Bash Texas is also dedicated to supporting research to end Type One Diabetes. A portion of event proceeds are also donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation to help make Type One #typenone.
Bacon Bash is brought to you by a great group of folks! This would not be possible without your support!
