Pizza event raises $6000+ for area firefighters

Stanley (WQOW) -

Who knew eating pizza could help prevent fires?  A weekend event in Stanley raised over $6000 for the fire departments in Stanley and Boyd-Edson-Delmar. 

The October third event featured firefighters cooking pizzas at Martino's Restaurant in Stanley.  There was even a pizza-eating contest between the firefighters.

In the end, the event raised $6300 for the two fire departments. That represents a big increase from last year's event, according to Martino's. The fire departments will each receive a check for their share of the fundraiser.

There's no word on which department won the pizza-eating contest.
