Thread: 2nd annual 72oz Steak Challenge for charity (want to sponsor someone?)

  1. #1

    2nd annual 72oz Steak Challenge for charity (want to sponsor someone?)

    So here's the deal.. this is the 2nd year we have a 'steak challenge'. It's a charity event where people can donate, buy raffle tickets, etc. The raffle tickets all go for some great products (last year Griot's had a huge package they gave they way.. Mike Gilbert had some car photoshoots he gave away, etc.) and the 72oz steak eating competition is what gets people to the event.



    They're trying to get at least six people in on the steak challenge itself. The steak costs around $60 (actual price isn't known just yet) and that simply covers the cost of the food (though, for any plate that's completely finished the restaurant will donate that $60 to the charity as well). This is a great event for groups to have people donate the money for one person to participate in the challenge.

    So I wanted to post up here and see if people here are willing to put maybe $5 or $10 toward the cost of a steak.. and then someone here can also participate in that challenge, if they like. Of course, this would get the site name in as a sponsor, etc... but that's not really my concern right now.

    for now there's just a couple of Facebook pages... the main web site will be up soon.
    fan page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-72...45759045466382
    event: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=161151017231990

    This is a pretty big event.. it's open to anyone and any car group (not just euros or volkswagens), so feel free to let any of your friends know about this and send them to the facebook page

    post up if you're interested in donating for someone to participate!

    honestly, I'm willing to put up whatever money it takes to help get someone in. But the real question is... does anyone want to be the participant?

    SapperMkIV (Kanon) won it last year. We were talking about it a few days ago, and he said he may go for it again. I will let him know about this thread, and we'll see if he wants to do it for the forum. I'll throw $10 in for the sponsorship.

    I talked to Kanon. He said he needs to check with German Perversion to see if they want him to represent them at the challenge, if not.... he'll do it for this forum.

    sounds good. If we can't get anyone then we can just pool some money together to donate for the cause. My thought was that it would be cool to help fill out the competition as well...

    I think I could eat that thing.

    But thinking it and actually attempting it are verrrrrrrry different.

    That steak is almost as big as Joel!

  24. #24
    yeah........ we'd be better off buying the steak and then just letting it sit there for people to enjoy staring at, than to have me sit down and try to eat it

    Very very true. Looking at it is completely different from having to actually consume it.
