Eating Contest for a Great Cause

Posted: Updated:

This week, the grills will be fired up and teams will chow down, all for a great cause.

This Wednesday is the 3rd annual Burger Battle at the Smokey Bones Bar & Grill in Roanoke.

The Roanoke Fire Department will face off against the EMS Recruit School in a timed relay-style eating contest.

It's all to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association, and you can help by dining out this month.

Since the participants will be eating specialty burgers in Wednesday's contest, every time a customer orders a specialty burger throughout the month of June, Smokey Bones will donate $1 to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

The pre-party events kick off at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Valley View Smokey Bones.
