Our founder Michael McCue, participated in a Twinkie eating contest against the Inland Empire 66ers General Manager Joe Hudson and 66ers Assistant GM (and Operation: GLove board member) Ryan English. The eat-off took place on Farewell to Twinkies Night, Friday, April 5th, at San Manuel Stadium.
Prior to the event, we asked supports to join our cause by making pledges for every Twinkie Mike could eat in one minute. We were stunned when we received pledges totaling $1,348.00 PER twinkie!!!! Thank you all so much for your pledges, no matter the amount!
So… drumroll please….. Mike ate SEVEN Twinkies! At $1348 per Twinkie that equals a whopping $9,436.00! With a goal to collect 2500 gloves, 1250 baseballs and $14,000 by the end of the 2013 baseball season – this is a huge start!
