Bacon at the Bear 2020 Fundraiser

Join us for a weeklong Bacon at the Bear Virtual Fundraiser!

July 27, 2020 – August 1, 2020

We’re hosting a weeklong virtual fundraiser with a silent auction full of items you won’t want to miss, including a chef’s dinner for twelve with Chef Shelley Cooper at Dancing Bear Lodge and Appalachian Bistro. 

Plus, we’ll be sharing videos on our Facebook page to give you a taste of our annual Bacon at the Bear Event. Hear from Chef Shelley Cooper as she shares her passion for Appalachian history and learn more about New Hope from the staff as they share what makes this place so special.

It’s easy to participate! 

In lieu of tickets, we’re asking for donations to New Hope. Our goal is to raise $23,000 to continue providing critical services to children and families that have experienced abuse and trauma. 

You can also register for the silent auction taking place during our weeklong Bacon at the Bear fundraiser. Link to register coming soon!

We have sponsorship opportunities for businesses and individuals that would like to make a significant donation. Please contact Renee Poole at to sponsor today!
