Pie Eating Contest - Fundraiser
VFW Post will have a pie eating contest fundraiser on Friday, November 19th at 8PM. All participants will need to sign up no later than Sunday, November 14th.
How does it work?
Each pie eating participant will pay $5 to cover the cost of the pie and automatically receive 20 tickets into the Grand Prize Drawing. Each participant will have their name on a jar and everyone else can purchase tickets for $1 each to but in the person's jar that THEY think will win the pie eating contest. After the winner has been named, that participant will receive another 10 tickets and everyone who placed tickets in their jar will all go in the Grand Prize Drawing!

Let's have some fun and eat some pie!
