PATONG: Gluttony and generosity will go hand-in-hand this weekend, when 80 contestants take part in Jungceylon’s first-ever “EAT-A-THON” to raise money to buy lunches for poor local students.

Jungceylon Public Relation’s Manager Slilla Svetsreni explained that on Friday, Saturday and Sunday contestants will compete in devouring four categories of fast food to be provided by sponsors Burger King, Swensen’s ice cream, Pizza Corner and Dunkin’ Donuts.

Expecting some stiff competition, K. Slilla said, “We are looking for the kind of people who can wolf down three medium-sized pizzas or polish off a whole box of Dunkin’ Donuts in one go. It will be up to the contestants to decide which category they compete in.”

Competition on the first two nights will start at 6 pm, when four groups of 20 contestants each will compete in one of the four food categories. Registration will open at 5:30 pm each day.

At 6 pm on Sunday, the eight individual winners from the previous two nights will compete in the grand final, the fare to consist of a mountainous mix of hamburgers, donuts, pizza – and ice cream for “dessert”.

The winner will waddle away with 10,000 baht prize money – and quite likely a serious case of indigestion.

To qualify, competitors must present shopping receipts from Jungceylon stores totaling at least 500 baht or make a contribution – of any size – to the Jungceylon school lunch fund.

Registrations will be accepted at the Jungceylon public relations counter on the ground floor or at the Siam Zone on the day of competition.

For more information call K. Slilla at 081-8084541 or 089-8160910.
