Castlegar school raises money with eating competition

Stanley Humphries will pit canine against mankind in a battle to support local charities.

On Friday, Dec. 18 it will be a battle between mankind, womankind and canine to see who can chow down the fastest.

Redford, a Grade 11 student, Wren, a Grade 12 student, and Charlie, a chocolate lab, will compete in an eating contest at the Stanley Humphries Secondary School (SHSS) assembly.

Redford and Wren will chow down on foot long subs, while Charlie will be eating a bowl of dog food.

SHSS students will vote for who they think will win prior to the competition by donating money to the contestant of their choice. They’ll then get a sticker showing their support for their chosen competitor.

If Redford wins, the money collected from the votes will be donated to the food bank; if Wren wins, the money will go to the women’s shelter; and if Charlie wins, the money will go to the SPCA.

The public is also invited to choose a champion, and can make their donations by contacting Shelly McKay at smckay@sd20.bc.ca or by phone at 365-7735.
