NASHUA - From 1-4 p.m. Sunday, join High Hopes Foundation at the newly opened Flight Center, 97 Main St., for bacon-inspired poetry and craft beers at the Bacon & Beer Poetry Contest.

The event will feature 48 beers on tap and bacon- inspired bites. Attendance can reap you two benefits: If you write a bacon or beer-themed poem - there is already a huge groundswell of hilarious haikus! - you could win first, second or third place prizes, including fun swag and even tickets to the NH Bacon & Beer Festival.

Now in its second year, the NH Bacon & Beer Festival, happening May 20 at Millyard Technology Park in historic downtown Nashua, was a sold-out smash success in its inaugural outing. This year, it's going to be bigger and better. Don't miss out; the first year sold out in advance in only 30 hours. Tickets go on sale March 18, or you can win them at the Poetry Contest.

Attendees to the Poetry Contest also benefit by receiving a presale code for buying their tickets to the NH Bacon & Beer Festival - just for coming to the Flight Center!

The Sunday event and the festival in May will benefit High Hopes Foundation, a nonprofit started by two New Hampshire mothers over 30 years ago, to help chronically ill children and their families have a better quality of life. Learn more about High Hopes' mission, how you can help or volunteer, or reach out about a child in need, at www.highhopesfoundation.org or on Facebook.
