The Dog Crawl is a cute fundraiser contest for our foundation.
The purpose of the contest is to generate donations to LERF while at the same time,
having some fun. The participants in the "Crawl" are Hotdog Vendors, Participants (hotdog eaters),
Sponsors (Donors), and Judges.
The Contestants secured Sponsors to make donations based upon the number of hotdogs each contestant
ate in the contest. All the players moved from one "dog" vendor to the next. When all was done,
the person who ate the most hotdogs won the contest, and the Foundation benefited from the donations.
We traveled to 5 locations and ate hot dogs, etc. Usually two or more at each location.
Sides and drinks counted too, toward the overall donations. He or She who ate the most dogs in the
usual five hours was the Champion of our Dog Crawl.
For 2018, we are looking for sponsors for those of us who will be "dog crawling" either by the dog,
topping, sides and drink or by a flat donation amount with a $50.00 maximum
(unless you choose to go higher).
In 2014, we raised some $3,000.00 with just 5 crawlers and their supporters.
For 2015 we were hoping to top that figure at closer to $4,000.00 or more.
The 2018 Dog Crawl is yet to be decided and planned.
PDG Dr. Ed Meyer, PCC Bob Virgadamo, PCC Mel Bray and PDG Robert Frank challenged each other
for the Top Dog Crawler spot. Dr. Ed Meyer has been the Champion for 6 years running.
PCC Mel Bray has been challenging for that spot for 5 years now tying for the Top Spot twice.
Will this be the year Dr. Ed looses his crown? Check with your District Trustees or here
