The St. Croix Foundation
On Sunday, January 31, 2016, Ziggy’s Island Market on the East End Rd. of St. Croix will be sponsoring and hosting the 7th Annual St. Croix Johnny Cake Eating Championship and Raffle. This is a charity event to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of the Virgin Islands and the St. Croix Foundation. 100% of all donations, raffle ticket sales, and contest entry fees will be donated to the aforementioned charities. Also a portion of bar profits will be donated.
The event will kickoff at 2pm and will be highlighted by the Johnny Cake Eating Championship at 4pm. Everyone is invited to come participate or watch as St. Croix's finest eaters vie for the crown. Entry in the contest is only $20 and all participants will receive a T-Shirt. The winning eater will receive a trophy, the title of St. Croix's Johnny Cake Eating Champion, and a Johnny Cake every day of 2016 courtesy of Ziggy's Market. There will also be prizes for the top woman and child in the contest. The contest is limited to the first sixteen eaters, and those interested in entering the competition can register at Ziggy's Market any time prior to the event.
In addition to the Johnny Cake Eating contest, the crowd will be entertained by DJ Don Juan, who will be MCing the event, capped off by live music from Jahnee Redlocks.
Ziggy's Island Market's Kitchen, Chef Aaron and Misfit Island Munchies will be offering food from 2pm on. Everyone is encouraged to arrive early and stay late so they can get a taste of the delicious offerings. There will also be drink specials all afternoon in Ziggy's Libation Station Bar.
After the eating contest is over, the raffle will close out the afternoon's activities. This year’s raffle features thousands of dollars in prizes donated by dozens of St. Croix's finest restaurants, stores, and other businesses. Raffle tickets are only $3 each or 2/$5 and are available now at Ziggy’s.
In these tough economic times, funding to these two vital community organizations cannot keep up with all of the financial requirements for the services that they provide. If you would like to make a donation, register for the eating contest, or have any questions about the event, please feel free to call Ziggy's at 340-773-8382.
