Pizza-Eating Contest Raises Money for Cancer

“Artie Berke, owner of Nina’s Pizza on Main Street in Northport, has hosted an annual pizza-eating contest for 10 years to raise money for different charities,” according to the Long Island Newsday.

“But this year’s contest, held Sunday afternoon, was the second-consecutive year that proceeds went to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

“St. Baldrick’s Foundation is something I feel strongly about,” said Berke, 42, of Northport. “Anything to find a cure for cancer so that children won’t have to go through this painful disease, I’ll work as hard as I can to make this happen.”
