Sid Bacon's Journal
Happy Valentine's Day from Sid
Written Feb 14, 2014 12:07pmLook closely! This morning there are wildflowers blooming where we scattered Sid's ashes -- the rest of the mountain is bare -- just a patch of flowers from Sid to wish all of Team Bacon a Happy Valentine's Day!
We Did It!
Written Jan 23, 2014 8:56amThanks to all of your generosity and support, Team Bacon reached its goal of funding $25,000 into the Sid P. Bacon Memorial Research Scholarship Endowment by December 31st! This means the Speech and Hearing Department will be able to award Sid's scholarship starting this year.
Sid was passionate about creating opportunities to support young researchers, and he would have been thrilled to see this scholarship come to fruition so quickly. We truly could not have accomplished this without all of Team Bacon's help! We are SIDSTRONG!
National Day of Giving
Written Dec 3, 2013 9:33amWe've survived Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and CyberMonday. Today is National Day of Giving and we'd love it if you consider a contribution to Sid's scholarship on this #GivingTuesday. Sid had many charities that were close to his heart: feeding the hungry, supporting the arts, funding educational programs for underprivileged youth. If he were here, he would certainly rather we shine the spotlight on other charitable outlets, not a scholarship with his name on it. However, a donation to Sid's scholarship today will allow the endowment to sustain a research scholarship for decades to come. A gift today will keep giving and giving.
Donations can be made online at http://asufoundation.org/sidbaconscholarship or to the ASU Foundation, Department of Speech and Hearing Science, PO Box 870102, ASU, Tempe, AZ 85287-0102.
Whether you make a donation to Sid's scholarship or choose another charitable outlet, we hope you can make the most of National Day of Giving.
