Lumpy’s Diner Annual Car Show and Burger Eating contest has raised over $4,000 for the Special Kids Foundation thanks to community participation and the “Beard for Bucks” fundraiser.
Last night’s family friendly event featured a little bit of everything from good food, to a kid’s zone. The kids zone included jumpy houses, a petting zoo, face painting, and even a kids coloring contest.
Meanwhile, the “Beards for Bucks” was a hit as participants had been raising funds over the last month(s) to grow out a beard and shave it at the event. One participant had over $1,000 raised while several others raised over $500 for their beards.
In a prior article, we highlighted the kid’s contest where 13-participants raced to see who can eat two burgers the fasted.
Finally, the adult contest was a hit as contestants were to eat up to 12-burgers in 12-minutes. The winner ate10 1/4 burgers while second finished 10-burgers. The winner received $1,000, second $250, and third $100.
Folks who could not stomach eating 12-burgers, were able to purchase a shirt to help support the cause.
“This is just one of the ways I can give back to the community that supports my family owned business,” says Lumpy.
The event had an estimated more than 1,000 people in attendance.
