Third Time is a Charm!

September 17, 2012

More than 700 runners and walkers turned out for the Third Annual Connors Hot Dog Stand 5k Wiener Run & Walk on a beautiful September morning in Angola. Held last Saturday-September 15, 2012, the event featured a post-race party with The Club’s very own DJ BobbyG and The Disco Duck Band that played well into the afternoon.

Our generous friends at West-Herr Ford were on hand with their Drive One 4UR School program wherein The Club received $20 for each family that test-drove one of five new Ford models. The Green Zone Redemption Center was on location collecting bottles and cans and donating the full deposits to the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Shore. Thanks to these folks and our dozens of other event sponsors and supporters, we raised thousands to benefit the youth of our community.

Teri-Okie the Clown was on hand to entertain the kids and our new KidZone activity area featured a bounce house courtesy of Bouncy Jumper and face painting and other fun games supervised by Lake Shore Central High School Student Volunteers.

And as is the case with all of our fun-raisers, it would not be possible without the help of dozens of registered and spontaneous volunteers who pitched into make it a success, especially members of the Lake Erie Beach and Evans Center Volunteer Fire Companies along with other Fire Police Officers from the Angola Fire Control Fire Police Association. Special thanks to the Town of Evans Police Department and the Erie County Department of Emergency Services for providing equipment and manpower to keep everyone at the race safe.

We’ll fill you in on more of the details but for now, here’s the link to the hundreds of photos taken Saturday. We’ll add the link to the race results as soon as they’re posted.

Thanks to the hundreds of good folks who turned out to race, walk, volunteer or otherwise support the race and The Club! Save the Date: Our 4th Annual Connors Hot Dog Stand 5k Run & Walk is scheduled for September 14, 2013.
