The founders of the Festival of Bacon will donate a portion of ticket sales to the “Future 6 Helping Hands Foundation”. F6HH was established to create extreme action sports programs for individuals in Central Florida communities that normally don’t have the opportunity to play or participate in these activities due to lack of financial means. With this relationship, we anticipate raising funds for the F6HH organization in an effort to provide a positive outlet for underprivileged individuals and families that want to take part in extreme sports.
