Pancake Eaters Wanted! This is your chance to eat pancakes, your chance to pig out and to be honored for it. It's a dream come true and the best part is, you'll be helping out a cause of YOUR choice. So what are you waiting for?

Come be a part of the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the CNY Maple Festival in Marathon on April 18th and 19th. The 2-day family fun event kicks off with the Pancake Eating Contest on Saturday morning, April 18th at 9 a.m.

You'll have the chance to down pancakes for your favorite not-for-profit organization. I've participated in the pancake eating contest before and it's an experience that I'll never forget. I was eating pancakes like I was on a timer...that's because I was.

The record number of pancakes eaten is 35  in 15 minutes...No, It wasn't me but I had a wonderful time for a great cause. Here's the thing, it's not how many you eat but the amount of money per pancake that counts.

So here's my question - Does your not-for-profit group want a fun way to make money? How about eating pancakes to raise the funds? You can contact them by sending a postcard or letter:

Maple Festival Pancake Eating Contest,
P.O. Box 291, Marathon, NY 13803.

Give the name of the organization, the address and contact person along with their phone number. Don't forget to include the name of the pancake eater and their contact information including mailing and telephone number.

When the Maple Festival approves the entry, you can start getting pledges. Don't miss this 2-day annual event in one of America's Favorite Small Towns- Marathon. Check out the fun we had when I participated here and as they say “It’s a Pancake Party.”
