I am doing an autograph signing at the Hot Dog Safari at Suffolk Downs this weekend from 12 until 2. The Hot Dog Safari is a cystic fibrosis benefit. It costs $15 ($10 if you buy in advance) and its all you can eat hot dogs. I don’t know about other UFC fighters being there, but I know there will be other athletes and celebrities doing signings as well. I stole this from Wikipedia to explain more of what the Hot Dog Safari is…
Boston Hot Dog Safari
The Boston Hot Dog Safari is an annual charity benefit founded by Boston sports radio host, Eddie Andelman. The charity began in 1990 to help find a cure for cystic fibrosis, raising money for the Joey Fund, named after a friend of his who died of the disease in 1986 at the age of twelve. One of Andelman’s all-time favorite foods are hot dogs, which is why the charity is called the Hot Dog Safari.
The Hot Dog Safari is one of the most popular charity events in Boston today. Over the years, it has a gained a steady flow of participants as well as money for charity. In one single day, an estimated $150,000 dollars was raised to help find a cure for cystic fibrosis. Medical experts have said that finding a cure for the disease is close to being found in only a few years’ time.
The Safari is an all-you-eat supply of hot dogs, sausages and ice cream sundaes. Money is earned from tickets (sold either at the door or in advance) and raffles. Entertainment is also provided.
