Vizo Financial’s Annual Hot Dog Eating Contest Raises $5K for CMN Hospitals

Middletown, Pa. – Vizo Financial’s sixth annual Hot Dog Eating Contest reached a fever pitch on July 17, 2019, with the most contestants and sponsors to date, and a grand total of $5,000 raised! All money raised benefits Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals at Penn State Children’s Hospital in Hershey, Pa.

Ten contestants from various Central Pennsylvania credit unions competed to see who could eat the greatest number of hot dogs in five minutes. There was an even split, with five women in the women’s competition and five men in the men’s competition. The contestants included: Terry Bitner, Vizo Financial; Elizabeth Bridgeman, Belco Community CU; Arlanda Dintaman, Members 1st FCU; Anita Fonner, Vizo Financial; Talia Frysinger, First Capital FCU; Mike Heider, Vizo Financial; Bob Keener, Belco Community CU; Toni Montgomery, Blue Chip FCU; Corey Mosby, Blue Chip FCU; and Brit Parker, AmeriChoice FCU.

Brit Parker from AmeriChoice Federal Credit Union won the women’s competition, defending her title for the third year in a row, with seven hot dogs. Arlanda Dintaman from Members 1st FCU won the men’s competition, consuming eight hot dogs.

For this year’s contest, credit unions and supporters were able to order contest t-shirts. Contestants received complimentary t-shirts. In addition, credit unions had the opportunity to purchase one of two sponsorships: the Frankfurter for $50 or All the Fixin’s for $100.

“The Hot Dog Eating Contest is Vizo Financial’s pride and joy,” said Erin Doan, administration and community relations director for Vizo Financial. “For six years, we’ve been bringing together credit unions for an event that contributes to sick and injured children and highlights the miracles that CMN Hospitals brings to life for these kids.”

And who better to demonstrate the impact of CMN Hospitals and the Hot Dog Eating Contest than miracle patients, Miles Graham and Sammy Hill, and their families? Both were present to share their stories of working with CMN Hospitals at Penn State Children’s Hospital.

Since the contest began in 2014, it’s brought in more than $15,000 for CMN Hospitals!
