Calling all chefs, restaurants, caterers, BBQ teams, and home cooks! We’re excited to offer you a chance to win over $6,000 in a charity cook-off, Atlanta Burger Wars. Atlanta Burger Wars is a preferred qualifier for the World Food Championships, and the three winners will go on to compete for a share of over $300,000.
The 2017 Atlanta Burger Wars is being hosted at Atlanta Motor Speedway, and all proceeds will go to benefit the McDonough Arts and Speedway Children’s charities. The competition will be judged by professional judges, but fans can select a winner through a popular vote. Now, before you worry about the costs of competing, please know that we’ve secured food donations to help off-set your costs. Braveheart Beef is donating 40 lbs per team (10lb per individual), and Thompson’s Market is donating the lettuce tomatoes and onions. You do not have to use the donations for the event, but we encourage everyone to accept them to help lower your costs of competing.
So, bring out the whole family and enjoy a fun-packed day of eating the state’s best burgers. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. To register for the event, please go to: http://atlantaburgerwars.com
