El Paso, TX (KTSM) — The Job Family, owners of Coney Island and the Schaeffer Family have made ovarian cancer awareness their personal cause to champion due to the inspiration brought by
Rachel Schaeffer Barraza.
Rachel has been diagnosed twice with the disease and fought it off due to its early detection.
She is also great grand-daughter of Angelo Saucedo, the original founder in the 1920s of the Coney Island.
Rachel has made early detection of this disease her main focus.
The Hot Dog Eating Contest will take place on Sunday, September 29, 2013 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m at the Coney Island Restaurant - 4224 N. Mesa, Ste. #D. (or until all Hot Dogs are sold - whichever comes first).
Entry in contest is $20.00 and will feature male and female competing categories.
A final and exciting showdown for the winners in both male and female competitions will be held.
The final victors will win outstanding prizes.
Each flight will consist of 4 hot dogs for consumption for males and 3 for females in a 3 minute time frame.
For more information contact Rachel Schaeffer Barraza at Coney Island - 915.544.4224 or Izzy Mora at The Green House Cancer Resource Center at (915) 562-7660.
