Omaha Beer and Bacon Festival

August 3, 2013

$30

The Beer & Bacon Festival is a fundraising event for The Ronald McDonald House & the Omaha Jaycees.

Essentially we are combining a Beer Tasting with a Bacon themed Food Competition. We will be having 6-10 restaurants/vendors/caterers etc. submit their best bacon themed dish and 3 celebrity judges will decide on the winner. During the event we will also be having a beer tasting of 12+ local craft brewed beers. After the judging we are having a very popular local band, The Personics, play through the eve to keep the crowd gathered and rocking! Sponsorships are coming in each and every day, and tickets are selling quickly. Don’t miss out on this awesome event, get your tickets today!
The best part about this event is that it is a Fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House in Omaha, NE. The Ronald McDonald House is an organization that provides for families that bring their sick children to Omaha for medical care, provides dental care to kids who might otherwise go without and supports organizations that focus on improving children’s lives. Here is a little more information from their website:
The Foundation of Our Organization
•The Ronald McDonald House ® , situated at 620 S. 38th Avenue in Omaha.
•The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile ® , which provides dental care to kids in our greater community.
•The RMHC Omaha Grants Program, which provides financial support to area organizations that support children.
The Ronald McDonald House Charities ® in Omaha is part of a global organization with chapters in 50 countries. Together, they form the official charities of McDonald’s restaurants. To learn more about the Ronald McDonald House go to: www.rmhomaha.org.
So, what does your $30 ticket get you? Each ticket will receive an appetizer portion of each of the contestant’s dishes, a tasting of at least 12 craft brews, a logoed beer mug to take home, admittance into the Personics concert, free stuff from our sponsors that will be at the event (i.e. Bacon Jerky from Westin Foods and you know Budweiser always has awesome give-aways) and drink specials with your mug for the rest of the night!
