Vizo Financial Corporate CU Helps Raise $2,000 for CMN Hospitals

Middletown, Pa. (August 1, 2017) – The heat was on during Vizo Financial Corporate Credit Union’s 2017 Hot Dog Eating Contest, which brought in $2,000 for Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals at Penn State Children’s Hospital!

The contest was held on July 19, 2017 - National Hot Dog Day! Six contestants duked it out to see who could eat the most hot dogs in five minutes. In a twist, this year’s Hot Dog Eating Contest pitted guys against guys in the men’s competition and ladies against ladies in the women’s competition.

Sam Glesner from Belco Community Credit Union won the men’s competition, consuming eight hot dogs, and Brit Parker from AmeriChoice Federal Credit Union took the crown in the women’s competition with five and three-quarter hot dogs. In addition to our champions, our contestants included Anita Fonner, Vizo Financial; Alecia Kolar, Hershey FCU; Rodney May, Vizo Financial; and Joe Strickler, Lebanon FCU.

In addition, 15 local credit unions and organizations also purchased Frankfurter Sponsorships for the event, including:

All of the proceeds were donated to our local CMN Hospital, Penn State Children’s Hospital.

“I think what makes our annual Hot Dog Eating Contest so successful is that it combines fun and light-heartedness with a profound awareness for CMN Hospitals,” said Erin Doan, administration and community relations director for Vizo Financial. “Credit unions and volunteers are always excited to be a part of this event because it supports Penn State Children’s Hospital, which is a cornerstone in our community.”

Vizo Financial was also pleased to welcome two CMN Hospitals miracle families to join the festivities. Sammy Hill and Caden Capitani and their families brightened faces of everyone in attendance with their stories and their smiles.

Vizo Financial would like to thank everyone who participated in this year’s event for making miracles happen for the kids of Penn State Children’s Hospital!
