Pie Eating Championship
Bringing Another National Championship to Alabama
Milos Famous Tea presents: The Birmingham Salvation Army National Pro/Am Pie Eating Championship, May 12, 2012, 11:30am-3:30pm.
On May 12th, we are planning a fund-raiser that will raise awareness and money to help thousands of people in our community. We will be kicking off National Salvation Army week with the first ever National Pecan Pie Eating Championship at Railroad Park (1800 1st Ave. South) in Birmingham. There will be spots for amateurs to compete against Eric “Silo” Dahl who is the #1 Ranked Professional Eater as ranked by All Pro Eating, and it will establish a National Record for pecan pie eating. Kids 10 and under will get in free to enjoy our kid zone, complete with a dunking booth, bouncy houses and many other family fun activities. There will also be a children’s pie eating competition with a chance for one lucky boy or girl to win a prize. We also look forward to honoring and celebrating Mothers and the 50th anniversary of our Women’s Auxiliary. Gates open at 11:30am, the Pie Eating Championship is at 2:00pm. Show up early to get a good spot and enjoy the days festivities leading up to the contest. All proceeds benefit The Salvation Army.
