Los Angeles, looking for a sweet start to the weekend? Let the World Doughnut Eating Championship fill your lunch hour like custard in a Boston Creme.
Taking place in Santa Monica today, June 2, at noon, watch the 8-minute fight to the finish with a $2,000 cash prize at stake and a belly full of sweets for the winner, as eating competitors from around the world face-off over doughnuts! What a treat!
If the sugar high isn’t enough to make you feel good, here’s a sugarcoating: the event is sponsored by the Salvation Army to raise money for veterans in and around Southern California. Now you can have your cake doughnut and eat it too!
