Bacon Bowl Association Mission

It was at the time when law enforcement officers across the country were called "Pigs" among other things and the climate between law enforcement and their communities was at an all time low in relations.

We want the people of the communities these officers are sworn to protect and serve to see the officers as not only a Police officer/badge/uniform/gun but as a part of their lives. To show that the officers are also fathers, brothers, sisters, mothers, sons, daughters and friends. In other words, human beings. (They put their pants on one leg at a time-like you and I.)

There was already a Pig Bowl in California and to show that these officers do have a sense of humor we decided on Bacon Bowl. The objectives of the game are:

1. To present a more positive, human image of law enforcement officers.

2. To help children. Most law enforcement people have a big soft spot for kids, especially those that are in need of special care and attention.

3. To offer the officers a chance to get acquainted and to relate with their brother officers.

BACON BOWL WAS BORN....

The entire volunteer board went to work. We borrowed equipment and asked for help from everyone we knew - or met! More than enough officers volunteered their OFF DUTY time to practice and participate.

Bacon Bowl I in 1979 saw approximately $5000.00 distributed to children in need in the Puget Sound area. Each year as support from businesses and concerned citizens grew so did the amount going to these children.

Bacon Bowl XXIII (2001) brought the total DISTRIBUTED TO $2,446,100.00 (TWO MILLION FOUR HUNDRED FORTY SIX THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS). Over 3000 officers from the Seattle Police, Tacoma Police, Pierce County Sheriff, King County Sheriff and Washington State Patrol have participated in this annual charity event. Some of the original players have become disabled, retired, died or become fans.

We are proud of Bacon Bowl, the largest charity football game in the United States.
