Midwood Smokehouse BBQ Rib Eating Contest

Aug 13, 2015

We just can’t thank everyone enough for this fun, new fundraising event!

A huge thanks to Midwood Smokehouse, one of Claire’s Army’s wonderful Sponsors, and to all participants and guests at the First Annual Midwood Smokehouse Rib Eating Contest!  What better way to celebrate July 4th?

Joe Menchetti ate his way to a first place finish by eating a full rack of ribs, collard greens, baked beans, potato salad, Texas toast and a big slab of watermelon in 5 minutes flat. Believe it or not, Joe drove from Connecticut for this contest. Thanks for your dedication to Claire’s Army Joe!  And thank you to all 12 participants for supporting Claire’s Army.

Congratulations also go to the Bobenage family for winning the Midwood Smokehouse/Claire’s Army give away tote. Also many thanks to Smoothie King Epicentre, Unknown Brewing Company, Bojangles’ and The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery for donating to the basket.
