We all scream for ice cream!
Kevin Bacon was brave enough to take on one lucky kid in an ice cream eating challenge in Florida on Monday. (Every child’s dream!)
Bacon, who partnered with SixDeegree.org, took a trip to the Ice Cream Eating Palace to raise money for Give Kids The World Village, a nonprofit resort that provides accommodations and access to theme parks for children with life-threatening illnesses, as well as their families.
“Ethan here thinks that he can eat more ice cream than me,” the actor says in a video that captured the frosty showdown. “So he’s challenging me to a contest. The winner gets bragging rights.”
Though Bacon strategically decided to use a spoon, little Ethan opted out of the whole spoon strategy altogether and charged, face first, into a heaping bowl of ice cream (smart kid!). “I never had a chance,” Bacon playfully says in the clip.
“Give Kids The World Village is an amazing place, I’m glad kids and families facing serious illnesses can take a vacation from those challenges and just have a fee-free week of fun at the resort and partner theme parks,” the actor tells PEOPLE. “I got mashed by a 7-year-old in an ice cream challenge that I hope will raise lots of awareness and funds for such a great cause.”
Talk about a cool treat.
