Thank you to everyone who came out to Fur Kids Foundation’s first Watermelon Eating Contest on Saturday, August 5. We had 23 people register for the contest—raising $230 to help Campbell County Wyoming families with emergency veterinary care! Below are the winners of the contest in their age category:
Fur Kids Foundation wants to give a huge thank you to our supporters for this event. They helped us by donating watermelons and gifts for all of the categories. Thank you to: Bomgaars; Gypsy Jack; Teacher's Corner Kid's Mart; The Rusty Bucket; Toolpushers Supply Co.; and Universal Athletics.
The Fur Kids Foundation board wants to give a HUGE thank you to volunteer Joanne Engelhaupt for working with the Campbell County Fair Board for many months to arrange the Watermelon Eating Contest, as well as chairing the committee of volunteers tasked with putting together the event. And thank you to the committee of volunteers who helped make this successful: Fawna Sylvester Bartow, Crystal Ninas and Laura Miller. A big thank you to those volunteers who helped at the event: Jill Matson and her daughter Abbie, Fawna Sylvester Bartow, Daiton Bartow, Donna Lhotak-Crippen and Tiffany R. Sylvester.
“Yesterday was so much fun! Watching the youngest category was my favorite category, those little kids DESTROYED those watermelons,” says FKF board president Mary Melaragno.
Thank you again for supporting Fur Kids Foundation in this new event – we sure hope to make it happen again in 2018.
