CLEARFIELD – The team of Bob’s Army & Navy prevailed in the annual Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub team challenge at the Clearfield County Fair on Aug. 3 for the third year in a row, finishing off the six-pound burger in 47 minutes flat. Competing against team Bob’s Army & Navy were the Clearfield Bison Football team and Sway’s Lawn Care.
A total of $2,640 was raised this year to benefit the Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors Association and the Clearfield Ministerium Food Pantry. Each organization received $1,320.
Clearfield Elks’ Issak Way donated his money from two cornish hen sales at the 4H/FFA livestock auction, which were purchased by Clearfield Agway, and the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 974 chanced off a “Pool of Fun” basket to benefit the cause, which was won by Don Jury of Clearfield.
Post the tag-team event, Dan “Killer” Kennedy, amazed the crowd, as he devoured a three-pound burger in a time of six minutes and 20 seconds, crushing the record held by “Furious Pete” of nine minutes and two seconds.
This was the seventh year for the event at the fair, that to date, has raised a total of $17,343 to benefit charity. Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub would like to thank all the teams for their efforts in raising money for two very good causes.
