A friend sent this out a few days ago, letting me know about a great bacon event being held in Portland over Labor Day Weekend (September 5-7). It’s to raise money for CHAP (the Children’s Healing Art Project.) I’ve included his information below:

We are about 50 days out from this event and I would love to have all of you forward this on to anyone who loves to get their bacon on.
Our hand knotted Bacon Boy rug from Nepal will be here, a 10 ft gold leafed Bacon Boy sculpture made out of recycled bicycle parts by a team of metal artists at David Douglas High School will make it’s blingy premier, Bacon Boy embroidered patches and Bacon Boy T-shirts will be on sale and including the villains that fight him….Sinister Sauce, the Nasti Needler, BarfBoy, the Pillinator, Earthquake, Snuzzz, Chikn Boy and of course Bacon Boy’s sister….Bacon Girl. All of the villains in the “Healing Adventures of Bacon Boy” have been created out of what children hate about their cancer treatments…..Barf Boy can eat spaghetti and then barf it up to tie up his opponent, or eat an ice cream cone….barf if up to freeze em.

Come and celebrate the life and creative genius of Austin Winters at the First Annual International Bacon Boy Day of Bacon and Art Festival…….including our BLT bar that will be serving the classic BLT, the CHAPwich….bacon, arugula, Baconnaise, peach chutney, and deep fried honey laced paper thin jalapeno slices……Bacon Maple Bars from the world famous Voodoo Doughnuts and for a limited time only Bacon Boy, Sinister Sauce and Bacon Girl cup cakes from the cake-a-licious Cup Cake Jones.

CHAP invites you to join Austin’s Family and friends in celebrating his life, his love of bacon, art and FUN.
All proceeds from our three day event support art programming in the children’s hospitals in Portland Oregon and in our satellite arts programming in Argentina and Nepal.
Check us out……www.chap.name…..or visit us at our Art Factory at 1030 NW Marshall in the Pearl district of Portland Oregon.

Frank…aka…Mr. Bossy

    Hello and congratulations on your post. I found it via Google. Though I couldn’t read the whole of it, maybe I should blame my sloppy Internet connection. It got hanged each time I tried your links. Hope things work in future. Anyways, keep blogging.

    That is some exhilarating stuff. I didn’t know that belief could be this varied.
