Yesterday we told you about how local landmark Jaxson's Ice Cream is turning 55 years old this Saturday -- and having a hot-dog-eating contest to celebrate.
Well, National Deli hot dogs is sponsoring the contest -- the company is providing one-pound, 18-inch dogs for the contest, PLUS donating all the proceeds from hot dogs sales and a raffle and auction
at Saturday's event to the Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital.
Deli must be suffering from a serious case of Givestuffaway-Itis

ALSO given us one $10 Publix gift card to give away to a
dear Clean Plate Charlie reader. (Feel free to buy National Deli
products with that card!)
To enter to win, answer these two
