4th Annual Bacon Bowl Held in White County

November 19, 2005 -- Posted at 9:31 p.m. CST

 

SEARCY, AR -- A football game held tonight in Searcy pits the emergency service personnel of two counties against one another.  This is the 4th year for the Bacon Bowl and the teams involved are playing for much more than just love of the game, “Searcy's done a lot for me as a community and I figure it would be a great opportunity for me to give back and I believe in the Susan G. Komen foundation that does so much to fight this disease,” said Ronald Hardin.

 

Those who attend the game are asked to make a donation all donations received from tonight's game will go to benefit the Susan G. Komen Cancer Foundation.  “From Hope Cottage down to this one… as long as that happens I don’t mind being out here,” said Hardin.  

 

Each year an organization is chosen that will receive the money raised by the ''bacon bowl''.  Different organizations have been the recipients in the past.  Woodruff County team member Shannon Lewis probably sums it up best, “It's for a good cause and just to come out and have fun and play football.”
