Bacon at the Bear

July 31st, 2021


Each year, we partner with New Hope – Blount County Children’s Advocacy Center to host Bacon at the Bear.

New Hope provides a safe, child friendly place where professionals can come together to provide a coordinated and evidence-based plan on how to help the child. The CAC model operates by bringing services to the child instead of the child going from place to place to tell their stories and find needed resources.

A portion of the proceeds from this event will directly benefit New Hope and the children they work with in Blount County.

Experience a unique culinary event at our Bacon at the Bear Fundraiser featuring some of the most sought-after regional chefs as they prepare Appalachian cuisine using the world-famous Benton’s Bacon and Ham.

This beautiful mountain setting is the perfect place to get away and enjoy some live music, delicious food, and an artisan village featuring local artists.
