Thanks to an overwhelming response from sponsors, racers and other supporters, this race was yet another huge success.

Fourth Annual Run is a Winner for The Club!

September 16, 2013

The weather could not have been better for another successful Connors Hot Dog Stand 5k Wiener Run to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Shore on Saturday-September 14.

As the photos prove, hundreds of runners, walkers and “costumed condiments” lined up in front of the Evans Town Park under perfectly blue skies and temperatures in the mid-60s — ideal for running a race that follows the beautiful Lake Erie shoreline in the Town of Evans. While the official results will be posted at, we’re happy to report that Sean Squire ran the best time to win the race.

Race T-Shirt-BACK2013As it has been for four years running, the real success of the race is in the much-needed financial support it raised for The Club, now serving over 300 young people in the Evans-Brant area since it opened in October 2011. That success is a direct result of the hard work and dedication of our club board of directors, our awesome volunteers and the whole Connors-Erickson family that comes together to support the effort. The Club is blessed with a growing list of generous sponsors who so graciously give back to our community, especially our “Big Dog” sponsors: Mickey Rats/Captain Kidd’s, Tops Markets and Wardynski Meats.

Participants and supporters once again enjoyed music and entertainment throughout the day from DJ BobbyG from and the Disco Duck Band. Read more…

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. Read more…
