Project Purple & Zois Pizza - Eating to Beat Cancer
Project Purple is 501(c)(3) not for profit organization with a mission of raising awareness and funds towards a cure for pancreatic cancer. A friend and client of mine held the 2nd Annual Pizza Eating Contest to raise money for Project Purple at his family owned restaurant, Zois Pizza in Seymour, CT. My daughter was invited to sing the National Anthem to start the contest, so I took the opportunity to capture the event for my own personal work. View the full gallery of images here.
The competition table is taped off to keep spectators at a safe distnace from flying pizza.
The pizza has been placed in front of each compepitor. This is a relay race with 3 members per team.
The eating begins!
Or stuffing in some cases!
Dipping, or better yet dunking also works.
Sometimes a quick break in between bites is helpful. The rules do state that if you hurl, your disqualified. I'm happy to say no one was disqualified!
This firefighter makes things look pretty easy.
Although he does look pretty relieved it's all over!
He was waiting a long time for his turn and is clearly hungry!
Yes it does.
Relief amongst torture.
Oh yeah, lot's of torture... but when it's for a good cause how can you stop?
I know for certain there was no hurling, but it really looks like the pizza wants out from this guys mouth!
There were some great contestants as well as judges at the event. Some of the surrounding area firefighters and police attended the event in either a comptetive nature or as a judge... as well as spactators too!
After the relay event was over, there was a competetion to try and beat last years winner in an individual contest.
This poor guy along with one other already ate one full pizza in the relay and also volunteered to take part in the 4 man individual competition. Yikes!
Inspection please - All clear!
Winners of the 3 person relay competition. Now, who's hungry for some pizza?
