The Local Tap House, 4 South Franklin St, Nyack, NY will be holding a charity Hot Dog Eating Contest, Saturday August 13, 2016 from 2PM to 5PM.

Do you think you could be the next Joey Chestnut? Or would you just like to gather with your pals for a fun afternoon with a purpose? The Local has teamed up with Captain Lawrence Brewing for their Second Annual Hot Dog Eating Contest to benefit Cystic Fibrosis research.

Captain Lawrence will be doing a 'tap takeover' along with limited release beers from other breweries and they will be donating their profits from the day.  In addition to great beer and hot dogs, there will also be 50-50 raffles, blind raffles, limited edition t-shirts as well as food from six other Westchester eateries, with all of the monies from the day being donated to Cystic Fibrosis research.

What is Cystic Fibrosis from Cystic Fibrosis News

 Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a chronic, genetic disease that affects the secretory glands, which are responsible for the production of fluids like mucus and sweat. Due to abnormal function of these glands, patients excessively produce a thick and sticky mucus that affects the respiratory, digestive and reproductive systems. It is particularly problematic in the lungs since the mucus accumulates and block the airways, leading to breathing difficulties.
